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.

Alternative Summer Vacations

If you’re looking for a greater experience than just relaxing on a beach, think about lending a hand to organizations in need of volunteers. It has become a phenomenon—no longer content to just be casual vacationers, “voluntourists” donate their time, money and effort for a life-changing experience. There are various organizations dedicated to matching “voluntourists” with over 2,000 nonprofit organizations. But, if you’re more hands-on, here are three tips to transforming your summer vacation into a volunteering paradise:

Local community service—Have a rewarding “stay-cation” by taking time off work and volunteering in your community. Donate your time to the animal shelter or homeless shelter. Find an organization that you’re passionate about, and help them out for a couple days.

Volunteer abroad—Explore the world while giving back by volunteering abroad. Many organizations offer alternative summer trips aimed to give back. A variety of causes need volunteers: humanitarian health issues, environmental issues, animal preservation and many more.

Do good in another city—Take a roadtrip with friends and family to a new city and donate your time to help that community. You get the best of both worlds; affordably traveling to a new place and helping others. Look into national nonprofits for an easy choice of city and a great national volunteer chapter.
