Beowulf's Grendel and his mother?

is there any evidence to which that these monsters are actually beneficial to the societies that they harass? I thought of the unifying of communities, but lacked the proper evidence to back that up

I don't think the story is a social commentary on monsters and humans cohabitating. Certainly Grendel feels the pangs of social and physical isolation but there is no textual evidence that they could live together.
