TFNB Your Bank for Life is proud to present one of our first Charity Champions of 2020: Esther’s Closet! We’ll be recognizing them at Saturday’s Baylor Football game.

Esther’s Closet is more than a program that assists women who are transitioning back into the labor force. Women from various races and backgrounds come in with one thing in common: fear of not having what they need to survive. Esther’s Closet watches these diamonds in the rough transform in front of them. Every one of their visitors is treated with dignity and respect. Most look unsure of themselves, appear insecure, and are not dressed professionally.

Once they are greeted as welcomed guests and treated as VIP’s, they begin to come out of their shells and display beautiful smiles that the hardships of life have turned into scowls. After speaking with them about their interviews, goals, dreams and aspirations, Esther’s Closet sees them walk with more confidence, and sit straighter. They are all smiles.

We recognized No Limitations at tonight’s Lady Bears Basketball Game. In addition to on-court recognition, No Limitations athletes got a chance to come out on the court a play basketball at half time! 

No Limitations offers flag football, cheer, soccer, basketball, sensory friendly holiday activities, an annual golf tournament, an annual talent show, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and more to kids with disabilities.

No Limitations consists of a large network of volunteers with a common goal: ‍‍‍the overall betterment of the lives of those who live with developmental and/or physical challenges and their families. Many of those with special needs cannot advocate for themselves publicly, and parents/caregivers don’t always have the time due to the overwhelming duties they attend to daily.

Their goals are to love, serve, and learn from this community as they help bring attention to their needs, and thus bring about opportunities, acceptance, understanding, and inclusion in the Central Texas community. Learn more on their website.
