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.

Make Room For Winter Clothes By Donating

While you’ve been stockpiling coats, gloves and scarves over the years, take a moment to give back some that you’ve accumulated. Narrow down your closet to the essentials so that someone else may be warm this fall and winter.

Set out on an epic closet sweep with the promise of helping people in need and a new organized closet. It can be difficult to let go the clothes that we once fell in love with. How about that outfit you wore on New Year’s Eve 2010? Or those shoes that were on sale at 50 percent off? We often justify holding onto certain clothing pieces, but it’s time to purge. Spend a couple hours on the weekend and resolve to finally rid your wardrobe of unnecessary items.

Ready to do it, but don’t know where to start? We know, cleaning out your closet can feel overwhelming and even impossible. Answer these seven questions to help you determine whether or not to keep a piece of clothing:

  1. Does this fit?
  2. Have I worn this in the last year?
  3. Is it likely I will ever wear this again?
  4. Does this accurately reflect my enduring style?
  5. Will this get damaged easily?
  6. Do I feel confident when I wear this?
  7. Is it well constructed?

These rules will help you reduce your fashion wardrobe easily and efficiently. Hopefully, you will be able to donate many clothes to people in need. After you’ve cleaned your closet, bag up the clothes and take them to the nonprofit’s location. Ask volunteers where the clothes are going, to feel more involved in your donation.

Once you’ve done it, be an inspiration to others. Invite your friends to clean out their closets, too!
