Impact Hub Santa Barbara is offering free workspace to business people and office workers affected by the recent South Coast natural disasters. The offer has been extended until Friday.
Initially the offer was good until Thursday, for those who need a quiet place to work where they can find a spot at the three Impact Hub locations at 117 State St., 10 E. Yanonali St. in the Funk Zone and 1221 Chapala St.
They all offer Internet, beverages, a place to charge devices and other perks, said Breanna Chandler, marketing manager at Impact Hub Santa Barbara. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 284-0078.
Chandler said the Thursday deadline to use Impact Hub this week may be extended.
Impact Hub is a shared office and co-working space that provides entrepreneurs with networks, programming and community they need to thrive, Chandler said. “With these deadly floods affecting local places of business, we want the Impact Hub Santa Barbara to be a safe place to help rebuild our community and allow business to get back on their feet,” she said.
“One of the Impact Hub’s core values is collaboration, supporting the community and working together in times of need,” said Impact Hub co-founder Diana Pereira. “We are stronger together. If you need a place to work, a warm beverage, some Wi-Fi and a friendly face; come join us at any of our three locations.”
Impact Hub offers: fast Internet; lights on, working electricity; space to charge phones and computers; coffee and tea; kombucha and beer; open table space; quiet conference rooms; a shower and bathrooms; and a supportive and friendly staff, Chandler said
Meanwhile: The Condor Express catamaran in Santa Barbara’s Marina and Island Packers in Ventura will begin shuttling people between Ventura and Santa Barbara starting Jan. 10 because the storm damaged and closed the 101 freeway in Montecito and Santa Barbara.
