RUMFORD — Danielle Simmons, director of day program and community case management for Hope Association, has submitted an application to provide rehabilitative and community services for those up to age 21 who have a developmental disability that affects their daily functioning. 

Northern Oxford County is underserved and in high need of good children’s services, Simmons said in a news release. One of the unique challenges for providing these services is finding staff willing to work the odd afternoon and weekend schedules that children and families often need.

Simmons joined Hope Association in April. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maine at Farmington in 2008 and a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Capella University in 2014. She received her licensed clinical professional counselor-conditional certification in 2015. She is completing her clinical counseling hours that will allow her to sit for full licensure.

Simmons has been in social services for more than eight years, with a focus on children’s programs.
