Welcome to St. Gianna Women's Homes

We assist women and their families fleeing domestic violence or who are being coerced into having an abortion. Each family is provided a safe and secure environment to deal with the trauma caused by the abuse, become self-sufficient and learn to develop healthy relationships in the future.

    St. Gianna Women's Homes

    In the Spring of 2011, we opened on a new 24 apartment unit which is sorely needed for victims of domestic violence and those escaping abortion. This is in addition to the existing three bedroom home we already have. Collectively, this program is called St. Gianna Women’s Homes. We now have the capability to provide a safe place for over 100 women and children. Though it will serve women of all faiths in the Diocese of Lincoln, St. Gianna Women’s Homes will not make any recommendations or referrals contrary to the Catholic faith and is staffed by the Marian Sisters.

3 Ways to Show Your Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s almost half way through Breast Cancer Awareness Month—have you found a way to volunteer and show your support?

2.8 million women are currently in treatment or have finished treatment in the United States alone, so to say that this is an important cause to recognize is a bit of an understatement.

1. Make a pledge to eat healthier.
This is quite simple. Studies show that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (and regular exercise) significantly lowers your risk of getting cancer (and remember, men can get breast cancer as well). Considering that October is World Vegetarian Month, we think now is an opportune time to try out some new great recipes showcasing some tasty fall produce. (Remember, fresh is always the better option, as it’s loaded with more nutrients.)

2. Donate to the National Breast Cancer Foundation
Helping over 350,000 breast cancer survivors and patients, the NBCF offers programs such as early detection plans, breast health awareness education, mammograms for women who can’t afford them and much more.

If you are unable to donate monetarily, consider supporting one of their many programs such as their Virtual Volunteer Program which spreads the message of early detection via social media platforms, plan and host a fundraising event, or find one of the many NBCF events hosted around the nation to support the cause.

3. Buy something pink!
Many local businesses and nonprofits offer limited-time editions of their products in a fabulous shade of pink (with partial profits donated to a breast cancer related nonprofit).

Peruse your local businesses (and restaurants) for pink related merchandise and show your support while sporting a dashing new accessory or outfit. (And men, remember: women love a man who can rock a pink shirt.)
