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.

3 Great Ways to Make a Back-to-School Donation

August is almost halfway over, and that means that a new school year is right around the corner. Notebooks will need to be bought, pantries will need to be stocked and long division will need to be reviewed, all before the first day of school. It might seem like August and September are too packed with errands and activities to make a thoughtful donation, but these ideas will help you make a big difference without adding extra items to your to-do list:

- Donate school supplies. Many families can’t afford to purchase all of the school supplies their children needs. Check with your school or look for a local school supply drive. You can contribute anything from a pack of No. 2 pencils to backpacks.

- Ask principals, teachers, secretaries, nurses and other members of the school staff what they need. Often members of a school’s staff will pay for necessary classroom items out-of-pocket so that they don’t have to place an additional burden on students’ families. Asking them what supplies they need for their offices and classrooms is extremely kind and will ultimately benefit the entire school.

- Find a food backpack program. Several awesome organizations have backpack programs that send food home with children on nights and weekends so that they don’t have to go hungry or miss out on eating nutritious food. Before you go grocery shopping for all of the sack lunches you’ll be packing, check out one of these organizations’ list of food items that they’re looking for.
