Serendipity Ice Cream was established in 2000 as an MV Advancements integrated work environment. The ice cream shoppe provides workplace experience and job training for adults with developmental disabilities. Serendipity employees bring an unprecedented enthusiasm and dedication to the parlor and to downtown McMinnville, and the community responds in kind.

MV Advancements was founded in 1966 as Mid-Valley Rehabilitation by Margaret Reavis Larson. Her pioneering goal was to provide employment options for adults with developmental disabilities, an unusual idea in that era. Today, MV Advancements provides employment, residential and community inclusion services to more than 200 clients.

You can help sustain Reavis Larson’s mission – and get a delicious treat at the same time — by visiting Serendipity soon.

We look forward to meeting you!
