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.

    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.

How to Live a Positive Life

Our calendars are constantly full and while we’re reminding ourselves that we can’t get it all done, we desperately try to. We hurry to cross things off our to-do list and yet it keeps growing. Don’t let the everyday errands and work bog you down so much that you forget to enjoy life. Living a positive life reduces stress, reduces physical signs of stress and increases general happiness. Here are three ways to live a positive life:

Smile more—With our agendas full and a to-do list that never ends, it’s hard to remember to stop, smile and appreciate life. People like other people who smile. Smiling more helps you think more positively about life and also cheers up another person's day.

Think positively—Smiling helps trick your brain into thinking positively, but it’s hard to train your brain to think positively all the time. Every night before falling asleep, keep a journal of ten things you are grateful for. It could be a delicious meal or that you got a raise that day. Just remember to take time to appreciate life!

Be thoughtful—Create more positivity in your life by having genuine conversations. Ask people how their life is going and truly care. Remember specific conversation topics: that their mom might be in the hospital or their niece just graduated college. Follow up and show them that they matter.
