By cultivating a caring community of neighbors helping neighbors, Benevilla is able to provide extensive support for older adults, adults with intellectual disabilities, children, and the families who care for them through a variety of programs including:
Benevilla services are supported through donations from individuals, congregations, service clubs and corporations and by the loving hearts and hands of nearly 700 volunteers. These generous individuals and organizations ensure we can meet the needs of our community today and in the future.

Are You a Hot Weather Hero?
This is the time of year when our northern neighbors head back to their summer homes, leaving a shortage of volunteers. The situation this year is especially dire with local options becoming more limited, leaving many senior and homebound area residents with no one to come to their aid.
That’s where the Hot Weather Heroes come in. In just two or three hours a week, an individual can go from ordinary citizen to Hero.
Benevilla, through its volunteers, provides transportation to medical appointments, assists with weekly grocery shopping, supplies home-delivered meals, and more. Schedules are flexible and can work around vacations, visits from out-of-town guests, even part-time jobs.
Volunteers can find out more by calling Bev Autrey, Volunteer Services Manager, at 623-584-4999.
