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.

Have a Healthier New Year

Good lifelong health is achievable with just a couple simple steps. Audit your diet, exercise and sleep habits, along with stress management to feel better and healthier. To live a healthier life, remember to create small, manageable goals for long-term success. Here’s a short list of action items:

Eat your vegetables—Whether we know it or not, we’re usually pretty picky eaters. Some of us don’t even eat one serving of vegetables on a daily basis. With the new year, start incorporating more vegetables into your diet. Vegetables reduce the risk of developing cancers and improve our physical and mental health greatly.

Exercise daily—Exercise is essential to being healthy. All you need is 30 minutes of exercise a day to improve eyesight, bone density, lean muscle and immune system. Exercise also releases endorphins which can uplift your mood.

Sleep better—Make a goal to sleep better and for more time. If you need to, schedule it into your planner. Make sure to get 7 or 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Create a routine before you go to bed, drink chamomile tea and sleep in a cold, dark room. This will help you feel well-rested.

Reflect on life—Give yourself time to relax, decompress and reflect on life. Make sure that you are not overworking yourself and falling into depression or a stressful pattern. Take time to breathe, meditate and love yourself.

  • 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.
