                             A message from the Director

                              Dear Friends,

                              Recently a person who took a two-hour tour of Misericordia had this to say:
                              “If you want your faith in Human Nature to be restored, take a tour of
                              Misericordia.” Why was he so impressed?

                              Misericordia is truly a “home” founded by believers who hold that children
                              and adults with special needs not only have a right to life but to one worth
                              living. Our Misericordia Family knows God’s work will only be
                              accomplished through their efforts, and they believe they are called to be
                              involved and make a difference. This Family includes our loving residents,
                              our dedicated and committed families, our competent and caring staff, and our
                              many generous and loyal volunteers.

By the end of 2010, Misericordia will be home to 600 children and adults. Yes, we are big but every person
in our care is treated as a unique individual with special needs, aspirations, challenges and gifts. They are
all “precious treasures” and we know how privileged we are to share life with them.

Misericordia is one of the few agencies which provides the “full continuum of care,” from our skilled
nursing home and various other residential areas on campus to seven homes in the neighborhood. Our
numerous programs on campus are comprehensive and life-giving, and we have 60 residents employed
outside in the community! We also have an outreach program for children and adults living in their own
homes and have limited space in our day programs for adults. Our campus is truly beautiful and provides a
secure environment that enhances our residents’ lives.

We are bringing the year 2010 to a close knowing if we are to have a viable future, and we will, we must
become more independent of Government funding. At this point in time we need the Government’s support,
as we have in the past – no matter how delayed the payments are. But the only way we have been able to
provide a wonderful life for every child and adult in our care is through our success in private fundraising.

Thus, we face 2011 with great faith in God and in you, our friends. You have never disappointed us and you
truly are co-ministers of our mission. You are believers and have responded generously to God’s call to
reach out to those in need. We are truly grateful you have found your way to Misericordia. As I’ve said
many times, the very presence of our residents among us teach us for some happenings in life, there are no
answers but there are answering people. You are truly answering people who reflect God’s love for us.
How blessed we are to claim you as our own.

May your Christmas be a blessed one and the New Year filled with God’s good gifts. Thank you for
believing in us and do enjoy the holidays.

 The practice of asking for donations to a favorite
   charity in lieu of flowers to commemorate the
  death of a loved one is very thoughtful. In the
  past few months, such requests have resulted in
  donations that benefit Misericordia. We thank
     those benefactors and their families, and
 respectfully ask that you remember them in your                  THE BELLISSIMA OPERA, made up of Christine Steyer,
