Currently seeking volunteers for the "New" LRoom Board
E. Clement Swan, Owner & Founder
“Every woman deserves a peaceful break from work and family chores.”
TheLRoom is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Gloria C. Swan, who raised five children working as a nurse. My mom worked a minimum of eighteen hours a day, five to seven days a week. Like thousands of women with, and without partners, mom was totally exhausted but didn't have a women's space to go and relax, de-stress and re-juvenate.
TheLRoom is that place, a dedicated women's space for relaxation, de-stressing, and regeneration for a few hours, or
vacation/stay-cation for a few days. This is important for the well‑being and health of all women and their families.
Join me in making TheLRoom an international brand name for women. The vision is to create LRoom's in every city and nation.
Working together we can do this.
