What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Mira USA Inc. promotes social, communal, and civic integration of immigrants in the United States. We work towards improving quality of life and believe in an integrated community that holds a positive perception about immigration in the United States. To cultivate our purpose, we use a community engagement framework that positions our organization as a resource. As a fully bilingual organization in Spanish and English, we navigate through the language hurdles and fears that can keep Latino immigrants from fully accessing services and pursuing opportunities. Through our community workshops, community action, and dialogue, we support the dynamic of social development in vibrant communities that allow the immigrant community to contribute to the United States and their country of origin. Our goal is to prepare immigrants so that they can participate in decision making processes but also to know what it means to be an active member of the overall society.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aims are carried out through four different programs which include Immigration Assistance; Financial Education and Personal Development; Global Alliance; and Youth Leadership.

1) Our Immigration Assistance Program offers free educational workshops where participants have the possibility of acquiring knowledge on different topics that lead them to have a better connection in their community environment. The services we offer through this program include citizenship services, family reunification services, humanitarian services, and others. We hold online and in-person workshops on United States immigration laws, the United States Census, United States history, and voter education for those who are United States Citizens.

2) In our Financial Education and Personal Development Program, we promote financial stability as we believe that the more knowledge people have about credit and banking, the better decisions they will make regarding money matters, saving money, and improving their financial condition and well-being. The program seeks to help individuals acquire financial literacy, develop financial confidence, and use banking services effectively.

3) Our Global Alliance Program is in Partnership with the American Red Cross where our volunteers learn the proper prevention and care methods in case of a natural disaster and help with the installation of fire alarms in homes throughout the country especially in at-risk communities.

4) Lastly, our Youth Leadership Program works to establish a platform for young professionals with diverse experiences, where we can provide learning opportunities and resources that will promote their professional growth and development. From the moment Immigrants arrive in the United States we have a framework in place to assist them. We begin with immigration legal services through the Department of Justice, immigration law, and U.S. History workshops. Then we educate them on financial literacy and professional development to apply for jobs, prepare for interviews, negotiate salaries, start their businesses, and understand how the United States credit and banking system works. We provide volunteer opportunities that can have an impact on their resumes. We hold academic and professional practice opportunities for our youth who are next-generation leaders and advocates. Overall, we take the time to follow through with the individuals we serve.

Our primary focus at Mira USA Inc is to promote the social integration of immigrants in the United States through our integral programs. We are committed to advancing and strengthening the quality of life of Immigrants upon arrival to the United States and providing a safe and orderly pathway to social, and communal integration. Our work will continue to advance the sustainable development goals target 8.3, 16.7, and 17.17 as Immigrants are an asset to the community bringing socio-cultural wealth, economic activity, and ambition at both a local and national level. Therefore, our responsibility as a national organization with a local community presence is to advocate by providing access to resources, information, and advancement opportunities.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
