Long-time service provider for adults with disabilities launches new name.

MONTCLAIR, CA — June 19, 2017 — Beginning in July, PVW, or Pomona Valley Workshop will go by a new name, Anthesis.

“It’s a name change that is important to us.  Our previous name no longer reflected the direction of our organization. Anthesis is defined as a flower at its most beautiful and productive stage, and that is exactly how we see the work we do.  Our services develop and grow the abilities of adults with disabilities and help each person blossom within their community” says Executive Director, Mitch Gariador.

Clients and the greater community have already begun to see some change, but should expect to see the full change in July when Anthesis launches its new signage, website and branding. The new logo incorporates the idea of a community blossoming through the flower icon, created by the fingerprints of the Anthesis community.

Anthesis, formerly known as PVW, has fostered skills, confidence, and purpose to help thousands of adults with disabilities bloom since its founding in 1966.  We are a leading provider of social and business services that engage and connect adults with disabilities within their local communities through job training, partnerships with local businesses, and supportive social experiences.
