because It truly takes a village!
Our community is stronger because we support each other and create a space to reconnect with what really matters to you right now. Our team of Community Coordinators all play a vital role in making sure our space allows you to walk in and EXHALE before you refuel with a cuppa Pachamama Coffee and get on to your next great thing! Each individual on our team has a specific role that enhances how we function holistically at The Makers Place™ and is onsite for weekly shifts so they build relationships with members and their families. Come in for a tour and meet these great people!
