ORGANIZATION: BENEVILLA

  • 19 people are interested

Benevilla is a local not-for-profit that serves older adults with dementia and intellectual or developmental disabilities, children, and their families in the West Valley.

We provide free volunteer assisted services (grocery shopping, transportation, friendly visitor/phone pals) to housebound individuals and have an urgent need of volunteers to assist with transportation (in your vehicle) of seniors to and from essential medical appointments.

Benevilla is in need of warm, caring, and engaging volunteers in our Home Services Programs. The Home Service Volunteer work includes the following help provided to our members:

o Transportation - Help a person maintain their independence and dignity by taking them to and from medical, dental, and other appointments as needed. Transportation will be provided by using your own vehicle.

o Grocery Shopping - Help a homebound or physically challenged individual maintain their independence by shopping and delivering groceries on a regular basis.

o Friendly Visitor / Phone Pal - Help to combat loneliness by spending some time each week with an elderly person or making phone calls on a regular basis. Friendly visitors can read mail and write letters, play games, share a meal, take people shopping, or just visit in the person’s home.

Please Note: members/clients served in this program are able to walk on their own, they simply are not able to drive on their own anymore. Volunteers will not be required to lift passengers or transport wheelchairs.

Orientation and training will be provided. An AZ level 1 Fingerprint Clearance Card, current driver license, proof of insurance, background checks, and personal references are required. The area in which Benevilla provides these volunteers assisted services is Surprise, Sun City, Sun City West, Youngtown, Peoria, Litchfield Park, Buckeye, Goodyear, Avondale and Tolleson.

Mission Statement

Benevilla. Enriching Lives.

Description

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 provides a continuum of care that promotes independence and instills a sense of dignity and self-empowerment, regardless of the ability to pay. We recognize that caring for the needs of senior adults reaches beyond the individual to the entire family. Not only do our well-established services offer assistance to senior clients, but many programs address the ongoing and changing needs of caregivers and families.
