  "Offering a hand up and a way out"


Welcome to the Encouragement Unlimited website! 

We hope that you would join the "army of encouragers"

and make a difference through the power of encouragement!

"Offering a hand up and a way out"



ENCOURAGEMENT UNLIMITED, INC. is a 501C3 charitable 

organization founded in 2002 by John Leonard Harris as a public 

service to help people from all walks of life.  The organization provides 

programs and services for individuals and organizations in order to 

move past barriers and toward success.



Our three pillars of the organization are:


PROGRAMS  - We look to "fill in the gaps" and provide programming that truly meets the needs of individuals, families and the community.



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!



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.
