Review for Benevilla, Surprise, AZ, USA
“Bene” from the Latin meaning good and “Villa” from the Latin meaning home—together it means “good home.” That is exactly what you find at Benevilla . The name and the culture of the organization and people conveys the warmth and support this agency is proud to have offered for over three decades.
Benevilla was formed as a not-for-profit organization in 1981 by a group of Sun City residents concerned many of their neighbors could not get important services to maintain their independence and quality of life. This lack of transportation, grocery shopping, handyman and other services could potentially cause premature institutionalization or rapid decline in physical and mental well-being. What makes Benevilla unique is the 400+ volunteers who are involved in all aspects of services, delivery, public awareness, fundraising and organizational development. Their services include five adult care centers, volunteer based home services, caregiver education and support, support groups, information and referral, and various other senior and family services.
