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.

Helping Another Mother on Mother’s Day

Don’t forget, or you’ll disappoint your poor mother. Sunday May 13 is Mother’s Day, and we’re happy to help you plan a special day that honors your mother and helps others.
Every mother would prefer quality time with you to a material gift. We’re certain your mom would be happier if you spent every Mother’s Day with her instead of mailing a card or even sending flowers. But not everyone lives close enough to his or her parents to spend Mother’s Day with mom.

So instead of sending a greeting card or a bouquet of flowers, make a gift of yourself for Mother’s Day. We love the idea of doing something for other mothers in your momma’s honor.

Best Money Ever Spent
Much like Christmas, gift giving gets expensive and distracts givers and recipients from the very reason for exchanging gifts. We still think you should give a gift on Mother’s Day, but not to your mother. Make a donation to your mom’s favorite charity in her name.

Mommy & Me
Help out another mother in commemoration of Mother’s Day and in honor of her sacrifices for you. Volunteer for a cause or a group that’s dear to her heart. Especially if you spend the day working at a woman’s shelter or an organization that helps children, your day will be more meaningful and full of love than any Mother’s Day before it.

Give and Don’t Receive
A little spring cleaning on Sunday afternoon would do others good. Clean out your family’s closets and donate gently used or outgrown clothing. Give the clothes to families with children who need them more. You can also clean out your children’s bookshelves and toy boxes. This is an especially thoughtful donation because charities benefiting low-income families don’t enjoy the same attention this time of year as they do around the holidays.

Motherhood essentially boils down to benevolence and a giving heart. Mom gave you life and took care of you, so honor her selflessness by taking care of others on Mother’s Day.
