ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A St. Pete startup that aims to reduce the cost of rent and to create a community is offering its services up to healthcare workers in Tampa Bay.

Docked Living is a co-living business in St. Pete. As the cost of rent skyrocketed in Tampa Bay a few years ago, the small business thought of something to help.

Each co-living space includes a separate room and bathroom but shared living spaces. It also comes fully furnished and with a cleaning service.

"At the cornerstone of what we do is community collaboration and partnership, and we want to figure out a way we could give back not only to the community but those on the front lines," explains Kate Berlin with Docked Living.

That's why Docked Living is offering up one of its properties specifically to healthcare workers and those on the front lines of COVID-19.

"So, we decided to open up our entire property that's brand new to people on the front lines who need that resources," explains Berlin.

Right now, Docked Living has eight rooms ready to go. For safety, those interested will be background checked and fully vetted.
