Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Benevilla's goal is to enhance the experience of life for people of all ages. The Phoenix Metro West Valley has experienced unprecedented growth; for example, projections estimate that Surprise's population could surpass 350,000 by 2020. Leading this growth is the aging Baby Boomer population. City leaders in the West Valley are taking a pro-active approach to planning by creating infrastructure and building beyond expectations a well-rounded community where residents love to live, work and play. As the West Valley continues to grow at this extraordinary pace, along with the number of frail elderly and disabled adults needing assistance, requests for Benevilla's services and programs will continue to increase significantly. In fact, over the past year alone, Benevilla provided 124,307 individual acts of service were provided in the community.

Benevilla's current strategies include: * Wirtzie's Child Development Center: Wirtzie's provides quality, licensed childcare; nutritious meals and snacks; effective and proven curriculum; development play structures and an outdoor playground for children ages 1-5. * Family Resource Center, which provides support for parents raising children and helps strengthen families so children are prepared for success in school and life. * Volunteer Home Services Program, through which volunteers assist elderly and disabled residents with minor home repairs, transportation, and other assistance. * Grocery Shopping Program: Volunteers conduct grocery shopping on a weekly basis for elderly and disabled adults. * A network of five adult care centers, which enrich the lives of elderly and disabled adults; provide opportunities for socialization; and stimulate their interests in leisure activities.

Benevilla operates the ONLY Life Enrichment Day memory and Alzheimer's programs in the state of Arizona. Benevilla also is the only licensed adult day healthcare services provider in Maricopa County to be accredited by CARF, the National Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Our Birt's Bistro and Bookstore is the only (or one of the only) social enterprise of its kind in the Southwest. Our intergenerational programming is an innovative blending of daycare for children with an elderly daycare population, which helped create the "blueprint" for the entire nation in successful intergenerational care. Benevilla also provides programs of support for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's, who recently had a stroke, or is developmentally disabled. Benevilla is licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services and maintains service contracts with the Area Agency on Aging, Veterans Administration, the Division of Developmental Disabilities, and others.

Benevilla evaluates its programs through the use of qualitative and quantitative assessments. These include tracking the number of people signing up for its services, number of people served, stated improvements in people's health and well-being as a result of participating in our programs, the total number of volunteers providing services to elderly and disabled adults each month, the number of catering jobs secured through our Birt's Bistro and completed each month, the amount of income generated each month from the catering service and applied to supporting Benevilla's programs and services, the number of individuals completing Benevilla's social enterprise training and obtaining employment, the number of children enrolled in our Wirtzie's Child Development Center, and the number of Parent Paks distributed each month.

2013-2016 Strategic Goals: Forecasting of Benevilla's Annual Plan is based on the 2013-2016 Strategic Plan Action plans and goals. The key result area is to increase philanthropic support each year by 3% in donations and number of donors, resulting in a total of 9% increase in each by December 2016. Action plans will be established in three major areas: major donors, sponsors, and planned gift donors. Strategic team members will be comprised of volunteers and staff with expertise in the areas of major donor gifting, planned giving, community engagement, donor-hosted events, sponsorships, impact reporting, grant/foundation relationships, auxiliary fundraising, volunteering, multi-channel marketing, and community events.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
