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.

Back to School Volunteering

The school year is starting, and your kids couldn’t be more excited. Friends, classroom holiday parties and recess are all part of hitting the books. But, the school year is full of opportunities to give back to the community and to teach your kids the value of volunteering. If you are passionate about a particular cause, share it with your family and spend time fundraising for it. Here are some easy and enjoyable fundraisers to do during the school year:

Bake sales—Easy as pie and as delicious as a pie, too! Whip up some brownies, cookies and pies for a school bake sale. People can never turn down a $1 homemade brownie. Maybe catch them during lunch or right after school when they’re looking for a snack. This will bring your family together and teach your kids about planning a fundraiser.

Family Fun Night—Involve the whole neighborhood with a family fun night at the school. Reserve the school’s recreation area for Friday or Saturday evening and set up a kids’ “carnival.” Maybe it’s a bounce house, or just playground equipment. Ask your kids to be in charge of invitations and teach them about responsibility.

Community Cleanup—Every park, river and highway needs to be cleaned up every once in awhile. This is easy to coordinate and only takes a few hours out of your weekend. Ask your local environmental department about participating and they’ll provide the vests and equipment. This will teach your kids about protecting the environment, and why it’s important.
