It really does in fact take a village to raise a family. That classic proverb is exactly what inspired the creation of Caalma Co, a new coworking space coming soon to Cincinnati.
“In the midst of an increasingly isolationist society, where many spend more time working with technology than with other people, and others find themselves in places far from home, I wanted to create a ‘village for the modern family’ where everybody is somebody,” executive director Rebecca Cadena explains on the company’s website.
On Saturday, September 18, 2021, Caalma Co. will be hosting its very first community event, a kids clothing swap. It’s their mission to reduce stress by housing many of life’s needs in one space, and parents know buying kids clothing in particular can be a real struggle. But that’s not the only way Caalma Co. aims to reduce stress. Other offerings include optional on-site childcare in addition to dedicated or drop-in work spaces.
We’ve got those event details here for you, and also more information about this new coworking space in Cincinnati.
