Manos de Cristo

Manos de Cristo empowers low-income individuals with a loving hand of assistance and welcomes all regardless of age, gender, race, or religious preference. Manos promotes dignity and self-reliance by providing essential oral care, furthering educational development, and meeting basic needs with food and clothing. In operation for 25 years, the Manos de Cristo clinic is currently the only low-fee, comprehensive, non-profit dental service provider in Austin providing high-quality care to low-income adults and children in need. The aging dental clinic located in East Austin is being relocated to a larger and newly renovated North Central location that will allow the clinic to grow from serving 4,200 to serving 11,000 patients per year. The "Grow the Clinic" project will fund the purchase of three new and complete dental chair systems to service underprivileged patients at the new dental clinic location for decades to come.
