  Accountability & Transparency 100.00 four stars
This rating was published 05/01/2017 and includes data from FY2015, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Our mission is simple. The Miracle Foundation stands for orphaned children and helps them thrive in real time. We've created a measurable, repeatable and systematic method to ensure that orphans are educated, fed, loved and safe. At the same time, we explore every avenue to reunite them with their parents or relatives, when possible.

Our method:
-Guides leaders to resettle children with a caring, responsible relative or family-and help them stay together
-Ensures organizations meet the United Nations Rights of the Child and rise to international standards
-Transitions orphanages into Centers for Excellence where children thrive until they successfully move into family care

Our goal is for every child to live in a loving family; to become a healthy, happy, income-producing person-and experience a true sense of belonging.
