Manos de Cristo remains committed to doing whatever it takes to serve our emergency dental patients and families in need. Last week, we amended our hours for our COVID-19 Community Response to ensure continued access to emergency dental care and food supplies for Central Texans. We remain calm, focused, and are taking safeguards to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have made the commitment to continue paying all employees as long as we can during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing us to be dynamic in allocating staff resources where they are crucially needed. Manos de Cristo continues to have Dental Center hours and Basic Needs Food Pantry hours.

Dental Center Hours (for emergency dental care only):
Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.;
Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.


Food Pantry Hours (curbside pick-up only):
Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Many of you have graciously reached out asking what you can do to help during this uncertain time to address these concerns. The simplest answer is for you to renew or continue your financial support of Manos de Cristo. Your support is critical so that our patients and families in need focus on adherence to emergency dental care and their overall health while we find solutions to minimize any disruptions to our programs and services during this time. Manos de Cristo wants to continue to serve our community’s emergency dental needs and give supplies to families who are unable to purchase from grocery stores, but to do this, we need YOU.
