Need resources?

Here are some opportunities Open Door Community Center has to offer.

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 in need with the paperwork and process to obtain these records.

The following steps should be taken to get these records:

  • Visit Open Door Community Center any Wednesday or Thursday morning from 9:00 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.
  • Documentation is not required; however, we ask that you bring any sort of records you have that might be helpful during this process including school or medical records.

This process occurs on a weekly basis.
The limit for these records is one per person.

Apply For

Community Center staff can help people apply for jobs and benefits (such as Disability, Social Security, food stamps, etc.). Come to the Community Center or contact Community Center staff to learn more.


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.
