Benevilla Is…

By cultivating a caring community of neighbors helping neighbors, Benevilla is able to provide extensive social care and support services for older adults, adults with disabilities, children, and the families who care for them.

Benevilla provides adult day life enrichment programs for seniors at four centers located in Surprise, Sun City, and Peoria. We also have two life enrichment programs, located in Sun City and Peoria, that provide socialization and work education opportunities for intellectually and developmentally disabled adults. Benevilla is home to a family friendly, intergenerational learning environment through Wirtzie's Preschool and Child Care.

Benevilla also provides in-home help for seniors and homebound adults with the assistance of our volunteers who provide home delivered meals on wheels, grocery shopping, errands, transportation to vital appointments, and basic handyman services.
