When you travel along Hwy 70 through the little town of Roby, TX, you pass right beside one of the town’s largest buildings, a local youth center known as The HUB. But what you also pass buy—but may not notice—is the little red building occupying the same lot. The building has a humble sign reading: No Need for Need. Interestingly enough, it was this little building that started it all. 

   The home Jim and Carolyn Wilburn raised their daughter in was one of love, hope, and understanding, always embracing the teachings of the scripture. Shannon Wilburn learned in her earliest memories that the answers to life’s struggles with complications are often discovered through prayer. 

   After going to Angelo State on a basketball scholarship, Shannon Wilburn became a basketball coach and teacher, a trade she assumed she would do for the rest of her life. Jim passed away in 2006, and thoughts of home and of her mother would remain on the forefront of Shannon’s mind.
