Two San Diego working moms launch a non-profit organization at Grossmont Center in La Mesa. The initiative promotes a co-working space with inclusive kid’s programs.
Following the global lockdown, 9.8 million working mothers had to take care of their children while working from home. While statistics show that working mothers are 28% more likely to experience burnout than working fathers, 68% of women prefer a remote workplace post-pandemic than 57% of men.
Besides its challenges, remote work models turn out to be a better option for childcare and maintaining a sustainable work-life balance.
New Co-working space For Kid’s Initiative
The Well: Community for Women takes over the challenge for mothers working remotely. The Well is a collaborative and affordable workspace to support women. The aim is to create a co-working space that provides kid’s programs.
As The Well co-founder Kristen Lucas says: “Our commitment is to create an encouraging community for all women. We meet the need for a distraction-free workspace with a great kid’s program, but it is SO much more! We want to serve women and build a place where they can GROW and ACHIEVE their goals inside a thriving community!”
It provides childcare and a safe space to work remotely or start a new remote business. In addition, The Well partnered with different non-profit organizations to offer free counseling services for women living traumatic life situations.
Specifically, the space targets:
- Stay-at-home moms looking for a community;
- Businesswoman in need for a quiet and inspirational workplace;
- Young moms who are seeking support with childcare to study for school.
The monthly memberships and daily rates available range from $30 to $447. The two founders also offer opportunities for a free trial.
