RUMFORD — The Hope Association welcomes Greg Fraser back as a member of its administrative team.

He worked for the association from 1989 to 2003 before moving on to other programs.

Fraser will be an administrative assistant to the Hope Association’s leadership team, where he will focus his attention on helping the team to prepare for national accreditation, corporate compliance and grant writing.

Catherine Johnson, executive director, announces that with the additional support of Fraser’s position, The Hope Association will work on a couple of new projects that will broaden its core mission of helping people to focus on their capabilities as vital members of their local communities.

In January 2016, the Western Maine Brain Injury Support Group was formed, meeting at 6:15 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at 82 Congress St. The first project will assist many more people in the area as Hope develops a new brain injury program that will provide services and supports to individuals with traumatic and acquired brain injuries and their caregivers in the area, Johnson said.

Fraser will also be working on replacing the Briar Patch Greenhouse. The current structure has been a tremendous success in supporting individuals with a variety of abilities to stretch and grow beyond the association’s original hopes, but it needs to be replaced.

The new facility will be more technologically advanced and economically efficient for year-round operations. Fraser will work with the association’s team on grant writing and other fundraising efforts to bring this new project to the River Valley area.
