Encouragement Unlimited has lost a great partner in  encouragement with the death of our friend Twyla Hill to pancreatic cancer.

We will be looking to raise funds to offer a $500 scholarship in the name of Twyla Hill to a nursing school in the area.




The goal of the community conversations is to proactively initiate dialogue between the police and the citizenry in an effort normalize relations and build greater understanding

Encouragement Unlimited, Inc. will have a report forthcoming from the five community chats with the Lincoln Police Department.  This report is the culmination of the work of the citizens who care about the safety of Lincoln, Nebraska.  The information in the action plan represents the tangible actions that citizens, police and the community at-large can execute in real time.

We have the summary of our conversation available at:




Encouragement Unlimited, Inc. president John Leonard Harris with Dr. Colleen Jones presenting him with the mentoring award given in honor of her late husband, Dr. Melvin Jones, former Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
