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.

Green Cleaning Tips

We commonly clean our home to get rid of toxins, pollutants and to keep us healthy, but what if those products we use to clean are actually doing more harm than good? 17,000 petrochemicals (chemical products derived from petroleum) are available for home use, but only 30 percent of them have been tested for exposure to human health. Synthetic chemicals account for many of the products in our lives and can eventually lead to cancer through exposure. Take precaution and protect yourself and your family with these three tips:

Use the right products—Take a look at the cleaning products you use now. Do they have peroxide in them? Do they say “100 percent organic” or “EPA-approved” on the label? If not, then it may be time to toss them. Look for green cleaning products at your local superstore with the correct labels. Carefully throw away your old cleaners at chemical recycling sites in your community.

Check your air quality—Keep your family out of harm’s way with good indoor air quality. Most times, the air inside a home or office is at a higher risk for toxins than the air outside. Improve your home air quality by keeping the windows open as much as possible, especially when cleaning or painting the inside of the house.

Clean up germs—We usually jump to antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaners for messes, but it’s more important to use the right products in the right way. Antibacterial products aren’t more effective than regular soap and warm water, and they actually increase the risk of super germs that survive chemical cleaners.
