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.
