By Jay Michaels

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - A local organization has been helping 'people with abilities' find work for 40 years.

'Magic Valley Rehabilitation Services' provides employment, training, and personal development for their clients.

One of those is Andrew, who is 18 years old and works at Pizza Hut in Jerome.

“It's a great part of the program. It's great to get individuals out of the house, get them interacting in the community. And they get to feel good about themselves because they're contributing, that really makes a difference in their life and in ours,” said Melvin Harvard, manager of the Jerome Pizza Hut.

Harvard points out about ten or twelve 'Magic Valley Rehabilitation' clients have worked at the Jerome Pizza Hut... in the last five years.

M-V-R-S's 40th annual meeting will be held at seven p.m. Wednesday, September 25th at The Turf Club in Twin Falls. Light refreshments will be served.
