The Washing Well is a community laundromat located at 640 Neave Street, in the heart of Lower Price Hill.

A few years ago the last remaining laundromat in LPH closed, leaving residents with no option for cleaning their clothes in close proximity to their homes. The Washing Well creates a community laundromat to meet the severe need for access to safe, affordable, and local laundry in the Lower Price Hill neighborhood. The Washing Well addresses this need while also creating jobs and creating a community owned venture.

The Washing Well is currently structured as a social venture incorporated within Community Matters programming, but over the course of five years, we plan to transition the venture into a worker owned cooperative that will create new jobs for residents and establish community ownership. This will generate a pathway for the community to build a resource to meet its own needs. The end result is not only clean clothes, but localized ownership of a thriving neighborhood business.
