About Bene: At Bene, we believe that growing older is no reason to stop growing as individuals or as communities. Quite the opposite.

Our volunteers bring optimism and enthusiasm, create positive energy and share diverse perspectives that lead to enhanced outcomes for our consumers, staff and many others in the Bene family. That’s something to be proud of.
