Vital Records

Open Door helps individuals get vital records such as birth certificates, IDs, and Social Security cards. The Community Center staff is able to help anyone with the paperwork and process to obtain these records, however will only be able to pay for individuals who are currently homeless. 

The following steps should be taken to get these records:

  • Visit Open Door Community Center any Wednesday morning from 8:00 am-11:00 am to fill out paperwork (required).
    • Because the process changes regularly, it is recommended that you come in person to fill out this information.
  • If you are approved on Wednesday, come back Thursday morning at 8:00 am and the staff will take you to get IDs.

This process occurs on a weekly basis.

The limit for these records is one per person.


If you need a secure place to store your belongings, please contact the Community Center staff at (806) 687-6876 to learn how you can get a locker.
