Dr. Allen is commited to helping those who can not help themselves. God has called us to care for those in need and to spread the message of His love. By providing dentistry in underserved areas, Dr. Allen hopes to share with others that there is hope beyond the world that they can see.
Today Timon’s serves hot meals averaging between 80-100 guests six days weekly. It is important to note that Timon’s clients are predominately the working poor. Only 19% of the clients served are actually homeless.
Initially primarily a feeding station, Timon’s has evolved into a day resource center with a complement of health services serving not just the local community but all low/no income, non‑insured individuals.
The William Allen Dental clinic opened in 2009. Volunteer dentists have treated over 2200 patients from throughout the Coastal Bend. In 2011, Timon’s began monthly eye care, providing new frames and appropriate lenses free of charge.
