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.

7 Summer Volunteer Ideas for Teens

School is out for the summer, and that means that your teen set is going to have a whole lot of time on their hands. Though the studying might be over, the summer months are still crucial for exploring careers and getting volunteer experience. Here are some fun ways that your teen can give back to the community:

Libraries
If your teenager loves literature or interacting with kids, the library might be the perfect volunteer opportunity for them. Tasks can range from reading books for groups of children to helping develop social media presence.

Camps
Too old to attend and too young to be counselors, teenagers are in the volunteering sweet spot for camps. It’s a fantastic way to enjoy typical camp activities while gaining new skills.

Nursing Homes
Nothing brightens the days of residents at nursing homes quite like a visit from a young person. Volunteering at a nursing home gives teens the chance to form friendships with and gain wisdom from a wonderful group of people.

Hospitals
Several hospitals have programs for teenagers who are looking to volunteer. This is a particularly excellent option for teens who are considering a career in the medical field.

Animal Shelters
Who doesn’t love playing with adorable animals? Volunteering at an animal shelter is also a great method of career exploration for teenagers who are interested in becoming veterinarians.

Museums
There’s always something interesting going on at a museum. Many have volunteer programs that allow teenagers to help with events or daily archiving tasks.

Local Farms
Farmers often look for the help of young workers in the summer. Whether it’s cutting weeds out of organic fields or watering beautiful gardens, volunteers will get to enjoy nature and burn off some extra energy.
