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.
