Home Delivered Meals
Benevilla, the West Valley’s premier human services nonprofit, today announced that the Home Delivered Meals program will be closing effective May 31, 2018.
Originally a unique program, the Benevilla Home Delivered Meals was one of a kind for many parts of our West Valley community. However, local service options have expanded tremendously over the past couple of years. After assessing current resources, as an organization Benevilla needs to ensure their treasured funds are allocated to programs and services that are not duplicated in the community.
“This decision by Benevilla management and Board of Directors did not come lightly,” says Robert Duea, Benevilla Board Chair, “We have spent many months analyzing our current programs, the needs of the community, and alternate service providers and have decided to collaborate with other providers who serve meals to the community.”
Benevilla is committed to supporting our current members and will work to ensure a smooth transition by partnering with alternate community meal service providers. The Benevilla team will also be working with the members to offer free Home Services such as friendly visitors, grocery shoppers, and much more. As always, Benevilla members and families are the number one priority and Benevilla is dedicated to providing high quality and compassionate programs.
“As the needs of the community change, Benevilla will too,” says Joanne Thomson, Benevilla President and CEO, “We will continue to assess our programs to be sure that we remain fiscally strong for our community and those that we serve.”
With this decision, the organization will be able to focus resources on programs and services such as Life Enrichment Day Programs, Volunteer Home Services, Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Resources and Information, and our Free Caregiver Support Groups.
Benevilla would like to thank and recognize our loyal Home Delivered Meals volunteers, our wonderful staff members and our community supporters and funders who have been essential in making this program possible.
