WHAT WE DO
Started by and for our community in 1981, Benevilla enriches lives of West Valley residents by serving older adults, adults with disabilities, children and the families who care for them.
Benevilla was created as a not-for-profit organization in 1981 by citizens of the Sun Cities area out of concern that local services were not readily available to the community’s residents. Their mission was to promote health and independence by providing supportive services to their neighbors.
Then, a group of 30 volunteers helping with errands and home care services and a handful of employees; today, a network of Life Enrichment Day Programs, various support and educational services, a comprehensive care-management programs and social activities – all supported by more than 500 volunteers and 100+ employees – that seek to help keep people independent and in their own homes.
By building a caring community of neighbors helping neighbors, Benevilla is able to provide extensive support services for older adults, adults with disabilities, children, and the families who care for them.
Benevilla programs are supported through donations from individuals, congregations, service clubs, and corporations. These generous individuals and organizations ensure we can meet the needs of our community today and in the future.
Benevilla holds their programs, services, staff and volunteers to the highest quality of care. We are honored to have received many awards, accreditations and certifications throughout the years.
