Staff AppreciationStaff Appreciation IT

During June, Misericordia is recognizing the following departments with Appreciation Events, including a catered luncheon, staff gifts and raffles.

  • Information Technology (IT) supports Misericordia staff with their computer and network needs. In addition to day-to-day computer support, IT recently completed a campus wide Wi-Fi and the resident care system (AWARDS).
  • Purchasing & Receiving consists of 4 employees and 2 residents who order supplies for the campus, including diapers, wipes, cleaning, office and PPE supplies, which they deliver to all residential and administrative departments. They also handle deliveries to campus.
  • The Business Office supports Misericordia by conducting all financial transactions/needs of the campus, including oversight of the residents’ personal funds; billing the state to receive program funding; payment of expenses incurred by the Home; oversight and cash disbursement to support staff/resident needs on outings, activities, etc.; and cash management of fundraising funds.
  • Development/PR/Volunteer Office continues to raise awareness and funds for Misericordia Home. Under the indefatigable leadership of Lois Gates, these departments work with the fundraising groups and volunteers to support Misericordia. Paul Schwartz is the Misericordia Volunteer Coordinator.

Once again, we are asking that families send us a note of thanks and/or appreciation to the dedicated staff in these departments. (We would ask that you not write notes to individual staff as not all staff will receive one.) 

Please email your notes to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may also mail your notes to 118 Wesley Ave., Oak Park, IL 60302 but email is preferred. The deadline is June 20th. We will display the notes on posters at the events. 

Thank you,

Lisa Masucci & John Butler
