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.

Volunteer on Independence Day

The Fourth of July is coming up—what are you doing to celebrate? Most people will organize big parties and potlucks, have friends and family over and watch a great fireworks show. What if you could do all that and show your patriotism by giving back? Dedicate yourself to a new way of celebrating Independence Day by volunteering this week. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Give back to veterans—A simple, direct way of honoring the U.S.A. is by thanking soldiers and veterans. There are so many ways to give back: volunteering at the V.A., sending a box of items to troops overseas and writing Thank You letters to soldiers and veterans. This is a simple way to show gratitude and patriotism.

Help a parade—If you have children, you may want to get the kids involved and volunteer for a parade. You’ll be celebrating Independence Day while educating children about the holiday and how to work in a team. Look into building a float or making pinwheels—these are hands-on patriotic projects that are great for a family.

Fundraise for a cause—Maybe you’re already dedicated to a cause other than helping veterans and community parades. You show your patriotism year-round by giving your time and effort to causes that help your community or country, so take the opportunity to host a Fourth of July-themed fundraiser to help your cause.

  • 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.
