That statement is what compels The Heroes at Home team to continue their mission to combat financial illiteracy on military bases. It is also what persuaded Ellie Kay to found Heroes at Home, a non-profit organization that holds free Financial Education Events on military bases around the world.
The Heroes at Home Financial Event is a fully sponsored program for military families that provides audiences with an event that is entertaining, engaging, and educational.
Ellie Kay is known as “America’s Family Financial Expert,” and she provides financial education that can help families pay off debt, build up savings and learn ways to get more for less.
The show features four expert speakers, a high energy millennial emcee, and over 100 door prizes. It lasts 2 hours, which includes a 30 minute meet and greet and autograph session with the speakers after the event.
Heroes at Home blew into Pensacola Naval Air Station like a storm — actually, the Tropical Storm Gordon. The Heroes at Home speaker team barely made it to Florida ahead of canceled flights and delays to stay at Pensacola Naval Air Station and provide free financial education to the Airmen, Sailors, and Marines stationed at that base.
Ellie Kay is the founder and CEO of Heroes at Home, a 501(c)3 that provides financial literacy to our military members. Author of a fifteen books, popular speaker, corporate educator and spokesperson, and mother of seven children—five by birth, two by marriage, and all by love—Ellie Kay has walked her own financial talk and knows what it’s like to be strapped for cash and struggling.
Ellie meets her audiences—mainstream Americans who earn between $40,000 and $100,000 annually—right where they are financially. She teaches them sound money habits that are do-able and will stretch their dollars for the lifestyle of their dreams.
