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.

Observe National Courtesy Month Every Month

Although September is National Courtesy Month, It’s never too late to teach people to be more courteous through your own actions. A little courtesy goes a long way. Being courteous is defined as displaying good manners and polite behavior. The small things we can do daily don’t require much effort and show the appreciation and respect we have for the people around us. Bring manners back through simple actions every day. Here are a few ideas on how you can pay it forward:

Remember to share—Remember the preschool mantra: “sharing is caring”? That still holds true as an adult in this fast-paced world. It’s the little things we do every day that count. Share freshly-brewed coffee with a coworker, share a meal with a friend, share dessert at home with family. Sharing will remind yourself to care about others and spread goodwill.

Always smile—A smile is contagious, and you never know when someone’s day needs to be brightened. When passing someone in the hallway, even if it’s a stranger, smile. Smile even if you’re having a bad day. Remind yourself and everyone else to smile.

Roadway rituals—We’re quick to blame the other driver on the road. You can’t change everyone’s attitude towards driving, but you can change your own. Drivers cut off cars in traffic, fail to use the turn signal and run stop signs. This common rudeness can often lead to road rage and accidents. It is imperative to start with your own attitude and be more peaceful when driving. You will be more aware of your own driving and this common courtesy will help make the roads safer.
