Giving back to our communities.
At Murphy’s Corporate Housing Associates, we believe in valuing people above all else, and this belief is central to company culture. We are passionate about making our community a better place. In 2015, we announced that our guests would help us determine who will receive our monthly charitable contributions through our client surveys. Guests vote for their favorite of the designated charities monthly and Murphy’s will donate to the most chosen charity. We are proud of our newest community giving program and we are excited to announce our next charity selections!
The Woods Project – The Woods Project is a Houston nonprofit organization that prepares students for college and beyond by developing life and leadership skills through wilderness exploration. They achieve their goal through an after-school program, weekend outings and a 2-week summer trip.
