Rev. Carmen Porco, PhD
Rev. Dr. Carmen Porco is President of Porco Consulting and CEO of Housing Ministries of American Baptists in Wisconsin. Carmen has successfully brought six low-income housing communities out of default to become models of effectiveness: strong, stable, and vibrant communities that add significant value to the larger communities surrounding them. At the heart of these neighborhoods in both Madison and Milwaukee are five Community Learning Centers that Carmen envisioned, planned, developed, and currently directs. These centers provide an institutional basis for individuals within these communities to access the resources they need to empower them to build their own futures.
