Founded in 1966 by Margaret Reavis Larsen as Mid-Valley Workshop, our primary focus was job-training. Under Margaret’s guidance, care and leadership Mid-Valley Workshop expanded its services to include housing and community activity programs. In 1993 the organization was renamed as Mid-Valley Rehabilitation to reflect this breadth of services.
Today we are MV Advancements, and we continue to provide supportive environments and programs for our clients. Together, we strive to create life-long fulfillment and growth.
For more than 50 years, we’ve helped adults with disabilities through our innovative approaches and caring responsive staff which allows us to serve hundreds of clients through an ever-evolving set of services. In our Employment Services, we match business needs with individuals’ strengths and capacities, resulting in a long-term win-win for both the employer and the employee. In Residential and Community Inclusion, we support individuals to meet and exceed their own personal goals of growth and development so they can live a fulfilling life.
MV Advancements is overseen by a dedicated group of community members, business leaders, and educators. The board’s vision is to continue to honor the intentions of founder and pioneer Margaret Reavis Larsen.
The Board of Directors meet monthly, and Board seats are up for renewal every three years.
