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.

    St. Gianna Women's Homes

    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.

Why Being Selfish Actually Makes You Altruistic

Selfish has garnered a bad connotation in modern society— it can mean evil, greedy, narcissistic, egoistic and mean. So why would being selfish make you altruistic? Because there’s a difference between being self-focused and self-involved. Scheduling “me time” for the key factors below will make you more altruistic in your life.

You’ll be healthier—Strong physical health is essential for being altruistic because it encourages dopamine, a neurotransmitter which makes you happier. But, being healthy means being selfish. You need to take time for yourself to exercise, plan meals and cook them.

You’ll be happier—By being selfish with your time, you develop a better sense of who you are and become more self-aware. This breeds authenticity and positivity within yourself which makes you happier.

You’ll have better relationships—Being selfish in a relationship essential means setting boundaries and prioritizing. This becomes helpful when figuring out what you need in a lifelong partner: look for a partner that fills your needs (and vice versa) and you two will enjoy each other.
