Benson Community Resource Council or BCRC was established in late 2017 through the sponsorship of Benson Hospital using an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer.

Its mission is expanding and connecting health and community services in San Pedro Valley for at-risk populations.

 

The Benson Community Resource Council focuses on facilitating and connecting different community resources in the Benson /Pomarine/St. David area. Their efforts reach the heart of population health by addressing community issues such as food insecurity, education, healthy eating, active living, medical prescriptions, and provision of community services. They have developed a solid foundation as a sustainable Healthy Community Committee and have increased the quality of life for residents. They have connected with other HCC’s in the county improving local social determinants of health. 

This is a very active committee looking always for new members to get involve. New projects and ideas are welcome!
