Heroes of Hope

 Our Founder, Ellis Goodman


Allow us to introduce a Hero of Hope who has touched countless lives with his “Keep Hope Alive” initiative. From public, private, and multi-national organizations, to health care facilities, educational institutions and local community centers, as well as speaking at regional and international conferences, Ellis Goodman shines his inspirational ray of hope on audiences everywhere.

As a tenacious advocate for the rights of men, women, and children, and with a powerful voice for those whose voices are often ignored, Ellis is a champion of the underdog, as well as a stalwart supporter of unsung heroes throughout America. As a fascinating storyteller, Ellis radiates the message of hope coupled with his ability to reach hearts, while elevating the spirit of all whose lives he touches.

A devoted husband, father, author, attorney, real estate consultant, disabilities advocate, domestic violence counselor, shelter volunteer, avid sailor, world traveler, and a tireless source of kindness and compassion for those in need, Ellis’ actions speak louder than words through his commitment to elevate the quality of life for those who need a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. Just recently, in keeping hope alive for at risk adults and children, Ellis traveled through eight Eastern European and three Middle East nations, providing assurances of financial aid and much needed provisions and resources for regional medical clinics, local schools, and patient rehab centers.

Whether it’s making dreams come true for girls and boys facing a life threatening illness, passionately lobbying for bullying prevention legislation, delivering holiday food baskets to needy families, distributing school and hygienic supplies to villages along the Amazon River, collecting warm winter clothing and toiletries for the homeless, dedicating Magic Penny Wishing Wells, staffing a domestic violence crisis hot line, awarding medals to Special Olympics athletes and Heroes of Hope, rocking premature babies in a neonatal transitional care unit, supplying suits and shoes to graduates of a drug rehabilitation program, passing along “smiles with stickers” to kids at pediatric cancer centers, or welcoming home our troops as they arrive back in America, Ellis can be counted on to stand up for the little guy, because his unwavering commitment to keep hope alive has no bounds.

To all who know him, Ellis Goodman exemplifies Winston Churchill’s eloquent statement – “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
