About Us


Doing good in our neighborhood!

The Sanford Community Center is focused on making the world a better, happier place, starting here in our own community of Palacios, TX. Our building is a great place for workshops, movie night, birthday parties or other special events. Our park is perfect for softball games, picnics, outdoor concerts or gatherings.


Get Involved

We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our growing vision a reality. Whether updating the building, teaching a workshop, helping a child with homework after school, we'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!


Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
