MEET THE BOARD

Mary Jo (Gugino) Colligan
- President/Founder

Mary Jo Gugino Colligan, Founder and President of Angels of Mercy, began this ministry in 2007 with a mission of helping hurting girls and young women. Having experienced many challenges in her life time and that of her family, she did so with a true passion. Her desire of believing that every woman should be able to ‘spread her wings and fly’, certainly propelled she, her husband and team of dedicated volunteers into action!  Through Angels of Mercy’s coordinated efforts and Faith in God, they extend unconditional love to help women and girls to give hope and achieve FREEDOM, DIGNITY and RESTORATION.

Joseph Colligan
- Vice President

As Co-Founder and Vice President of Angels of Mercy, I have been involved since the inception of Angels of Mercy with my wife, Mary Jo.  Having experienced personal challenges and seeing so many others in pain and suffering, I knew it was time to help.  Mary Jo and I looked into many programs that help women with life controlling issues.  After much thought and prayer, we knew we wanted to be a Christian-based organization that would serve women and help them to overcome their individual struggles.
