Mission Statement 

The Macomb Immigrant Service Center (MISC) provides comprehensive human services and advocacy and empowerment programs to foster and increase self-sufficiency and independence among Hispanics and persons of other cultures in need
within our community. 


The Macomb Immigrant Service Center (MISC) is a Recognized Organization by the Department of Justice and serves Oakland, Macomb, St. Clair and Lapeer counties, as well as other outlying communities in Michigan. What began as a coalition of volunteers has grown into a viable nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, providing critically needed human services and advocacy programs. This is accomplished through numerous empowerment initiatives and community collaborations.

MISC was created to address the lack of culturally and linguistically effective programs for at-risk people in need. The issue continues to be relevant as these populations grow and providers in the community cannot respond effectively to the demands for services that must be implemented through cultural and linguistic understanding.  MISC staff members are multicultural, degreed professionals, experienced in working effectively in a diverse setting. Its dynamic volunteer board of directors is made up of talented physicians, experienced corporate executives, accomplished attorneys and influential community leaders who expertly guide the organization.  

MISC provides a wide variety of services and programs that help people in need become active, well-educated and financially stable. These programs include, but are not limited to, the following: 
> Accredited Immigration Services               > Citizenship Classes
> Basic & Advanced English Classes           > Interpretations
> Conversational Spanish Classes               > Translation of Documents
> Financial Literacy / Fitness Classes          > Basic Computer Classes
> Notary Public Services
