Hearts In Motion

Empowering our volunteers, staff, and donors to positively impact the lives of people in need.










Our Mission:
Empowering our volunteers to positively impact the lives of people in need. 




Hearts In Motion (HIM), is a nonprofit organization, incorporated in 1990. Its mission is to empower volunteers to positively impact the lives of people in need. HIM provides quality medical care, assists in the development of social programs to improve health, education and welfare for people, and provides opportunities for individuals to participate in life-changing short-term mission and service experiences in the U.S., Central and South America, enhancing the lives of vulnerable populations. In Guatemala, HIM operates a children’s home, nutrition center, senior center, rehabilitation centers, and sponsorship program for school age children, and provides medical and surgical care, education and training programs, construction projects, and emergency responder services and equipment. For over 30 years HIM has positively touched and changed the lives of thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in poverty or distress. HIM also operates a resale shoppe in Schererville Indiana partially staffed to provide vocational education to young developmentally disabled adults, and providing low-cost items for struggling families. With headquarters in Schererville Indiana, and satellite offices in Gualan, Guatemala, Louisville KY, Tulsa OK, and Mukwonago WI, HIM draws volunteers to service from across the US. 



Find yourself by finding HIM, you can make a difference!



Hearts In Motion Receives Legacy Foundation Grant to Help Families in Crisis


In an interview with Adams Radio, hear about how Hearts In Motion's New Directions program started during the pandemic. Executive Director & Founder Karen Scheeringa discusses how partnerships, volunteerism, and donations to our resale shop help families in need. Karen also previews what Hearts In Motion is doing this fall with a mobile medical clinic in Chicago, international firefighter training, and travel to Guatemala to provide free orthopedic medical services to people experiencing extreme poverty. 


You don't have to travel to Guatemala to make a positive difference in someone's life! You can donate gently used household items to our resale shop, call us to volunteer, or join us on a mission trip! Reach out today!
