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.

October 10 is World Mental Health Day

Mental health is finally making its way to the forefront of society. For years, it was taboo to even talk about mental health, and now, we’re becoming more aware of how we can promote it in our communities and within ourselves. When we confront the topic and educate people, we decrease suicides and other harmful events. But first, it is imperative to educate yourself. Take time on October 10 to research more about mental health. For now, here are three ways to promote it within your community:

Suicide prevention fundraiser—If you are passionate about mental health but not sure how to express it, try organizing a fundraiser. You can hand out suicide prevention pamphlets and provide access and knowledge to confidential providers.

Talk about mental health—The most important way to promote mental health is to talk about it and erase the stigma. Talk about treatment, symptoms and the harmful effects of not treating depression or other mental health diseases.

Be understanding—One in five people have been affected by depression in their lifetime. Be a loyal friend, even through the tough times, and help your friends and families who may be suffering from depression.

  • 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.
