Welcome to the Encouragement Unlimited website! 

We hope that you would join the "army of encouragers" and look to make a difference through the power of encouragement!

Encouragement Unlimited, Inc. was founded to "make encouraging and inspiring others a way of life."


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. 

Over 15,000 sent out!



We offered the first ever Twyla HIll Nursing Scholarship and the winner was Janet Goodman Banks (center).  

Ms. Goodman Banks is studying at the Bryan School of Nursing is receiving the $500  check from the daughters of Twyla Hill (Julane Hill, far left) and Tami Murrish).



An anonymous donation turned into a $500 donation to The Bridge's substance abuse efforts in the name of Marvin Sullivan who was only 24 when he died because of a pill overdose early in 2020.

What better time for encouragement than in a time of crisis?  We always believe that the time is right to seek to make a difference by encouraging others in some way.  Our ENCOURAGEMENT CARE PACKAGE project was just one way that we could help individuals, families and the homeless in our community.

Our initial intent was to make about eight (8) care packages, but with the help of the community and people across the country, we have made (and delivered) fifty (50) care packages and will be making another twenty (20) bags for the homeless, bringing that total to sixty (60).

We would appreciate your help!  Use the donation options (below) to give your generous tax-deductible donation to help us in this effort!.
