“Shelter is the most basic of necessities, but for many, safe living conditions are in short supply. In Guatemala, the third poorest country in Latin America, more than 50% of all families live in extreme poverty, sheltering in makeshift, unsafe and unsanitary homes.
Jim Quigley is helping to reverse those grim statistics…one family at a time. A Chicago-based financial advisor, Jim is the founding board member of HOPE’S IN, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering families in Guatemala City and developing the next generation of humanitarian leaders.

Jim was the 2018 Invest in Others Global Impact Award winner. This past August, Jim and his daughter Courtney McGovern, executive director of HOPE’S IN, used a portion of our $40,000 award donation to complete the organization’s 38thhome—which was named after Invest in Others.”
