WHO ARE WE?
Encouragement Unlimited, Inc. is a 501 C 3 tax exempt organization founded by John Leonard Harris in 2002 as a public service to make encouraging and inspiring others a way of life. The organization works through programs, partnerships and postcards to help to "move life forward" for people from all walks of life.
For more than 18 years Encouragement Unlimited, Inc. has served people from all walks of life and especially those who "fall through the cracks."
Our organizations helps people plain and simple. Whether it's food, lodging, clothing, gift cards, you name it, we seek to be a resource that "moves life forward" breaking down the obstacles that are in the way.
Our three pillars of the organization are:
PROGRAMS - We look to build hope by "filling in the gaps" with programming that truly meets the needs of individuals, families and our community.
Programs include: “Encouraging the Arts,” “Dress to Impress Suit Giveaway,” “Manhood 101: Boys to Men Conference,” “No More, No Here Anti-Violence Rally,” “Can We Chat: Community Conversations with Police,” “Holiday Blessings Gift Card Project” and “Encouragement Care Package Project.”
PARTNERSHIPS - We realize that we do not have to "reinvent the wheel." We look for organizations that need the help that we can provide and believe what we believe. We look forward to working with organizations that want to make a difference!
Partnerships include: Sam’s Club (North LINCOLN), Lied Center for Performing Arts, Men‘s Wearhouse, Lincoln Police Department, Target Stores, Racquet Corner, Salvation Army, Bridges to Hope, and Clyde Malone Community Center.
POSTCARDS - We believe in the "power of encouragement" and offer encouragement through our postcards to people all across the country. We always offer postcards to those who want to "join the army of encouragers" and will send encouragement to those in their sphere of influence.
