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.

Encourage Your Employees With Philanthropy

"Carrots and sticks are so last century." So says Daniel Pink–an author who wants you to know that employees today aren't just looking for a fat paycheck and a pension. According to a 2009 survey, compensation's not even in the top 5 factors for workplace satisfaction.

Fulfilled employees go after the intangibles. They love things like the freedom to decide what to work on and acknowledgement when they do good work. But most importantly, people seek a feeling of significance–of contributing value and making a difference in their environment.

This need for significance is one of the biggest reasons so many companiesinies are embracing workplace giving and philanthropy. Here are 3 ways to value your employees by encouraging them to give back:

Get Them Involved
It's not good enough to tell employee about your favorite charity and encourage them to volunteer or donate. Effective philanthropy means getting people involved in the process–and allowing them to express their unique values. Survey your employees to figure out what kind of charitable activity would interest them. Figure out if there's a connection between existing values and a potential nonprofit partner. Allow employees to make their own decisions.

Strengthen Your Team
Sure, when everyone's working together, they're fighting for a common goal–in theory. The reality is that many times we find ourselves competing against our fellow coworkers and need an outside goal to unite us. Working together to help a nonprofit or fight a problem in the world is a great way to unify your team and create natural bonding experiences outside the workplace.

Helping the make the world a better place is an awesome goal. But what's even better is enriching the world AND your employee's careers. Give them opportunities to give back–and they'll bring that motivation back with them to work.

  • Area Catholic choirs will perform Advent and Christmas songs of the season in the beautiful setting of St. Thomas Aquinas Church (the Newman Center) on the campus of UNL. Visit our calendar of event page for more information and to print out a ticket order form.
