Michael’s House, dedicated in December 2008, is named in honor of Michael Mercurio, who passed away unexpectedly on July 4, 2007 at the age of 37. Michael devoted his life to improving the lives of others, particularly children. As an endodontist, Michael traveled to Romania each year to give dental care to children in orphanages. In 2006, he was recognized as Rotarian of the Year for his efforts to help children.
Today, community individuals and organizations carry Michael’s legacy forward. By working to improve the delivery of services to area children who are affected by abuse and neglect, this regional facility reflects his unconditional caring and respect for others.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month!
