Help reduce food insecurity for home-bound individuals and families by volunteering to deliver food to our neighbors! Benefits in Action helps home-bound seniors and families without transportation access additional nutrition through free, monthly deliveries of fresh and non-perishable food.

Volunteer Delivery Drivers must have a vehicle that can accommodate 6-8 large boxes (24"x24"), a cell phone, and be able to lift about 20 pounds and navigate steps and stairs to clients homes.

To ensure the safety of our clients, we conduct a background screening that includes criminal and driving record search. We require volunteers to provide a current drive's license and proof of automobile insurance.

Mission Statement

Benefits in Action is dedicated to supporting our connecting our diverse community with the support and resources they need to thrive.

Description

Benefits in Action is a nonprofit organization located in Lakewood, Colorado that serves individuals throughout the state. We strive to increase understanding, access, and utilization of healthcare resources. Our team of navigators (staff and volunteers) works with individuals to help them recognize the health-related benefits they qualify for, apply to those benefits, and utilize them as effectively as possible. We are passionate about the importance of increasing healthcare benefit literacy among the public. Accordingly, we organize and hold educational sessions in public facilities aimed at increasing individual understanding and self-efficacy in navigating the healthcare system. In addition to benefit navigation, we also provide tax preparation, mental wellness support, and food delivery (in the Denver-metro area).
