Where it Started for Us
In 2006, the Quigley family started doing international service trips – the first to Guatemala to build a playground.
Six years later, we worked together to start our nonprofit, Hope’s In, which works locally in Chicago and internationally in the Guatemala City garbage dump communities.
Today, Barrington Wealth Management is growing to work with as many clients’ causes as possible. But our hearts are still with our own. We make monthly contributions to Hope’s In’s development and programs, serve on its board and bring families down – sometimes clients – to Guatemala City every year.
We are particularly excited about Hope’s In’s new programs directed toward young moms and the community of people with disabilities as well as the growth of Oso – a teddy bear company that employs twelve women at double the community’s average income.
Hope’s In is dedicated to impacting and empowering the Guatemala City garbage dump communities and developing the next generation of humanitarian leaders. The main focus of Hope’s In is to provide hope, empowerment and the goal of bringing purpose into people’s lives both abroad and here in the United States through serving others. Their impact in Guatemala City is focused on projects such as building homes, hosting medical clinics, and providing sports camps in the garbage dump communities. The Quigley family founded the organization in 2012 and remain active members of the organization’s leadership.
Jim Quigley was selected as the 2018 Invest in Others Global Impact Award winner for his charitable work with Hope’s In. Invest in Others is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting and empowering financial advisors who give back to their communities.
Jim has been a member of Rotary since 2012 and focuses his effort on the Rotary high school service club called Interact. The Interact Club encourages students to identify their personal service interest and develop projects to make a difference. The Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club (BBRC) is a diverse group of professionals living and working in the greater Barrington area who are united in commitment to provide humanitarian service. Our mission is to contribute to life enrichment programs for people of all ages, support community life-saving projects, promote connectivity and enhanced interaction within the community.
The Quigley family has traveled with Kids Around the world since 2006 and has built 10 playgrounds in various 3rd world countries. Recognizing that children are truly the greatest resource in the world, Kids Around The World exists to reach children and to help those who work with children. Kids Around the World, Inc. (KIDS) is a faith-based 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families who have been affected by war, poverty, illness, and natural disasters. So often children find themselves as victims of situations out of their control, they become victims of economic stress, victims of political injustice, victims of natural disasters and worst of all, victims of war. It was for these children that Kids Around the World began.
