They say that home is where the heart is. Murphy’s Corporate Lodging’s heart is with Texas and the world as we weather the effects of the global coronavirus pandemic together. We are Texas strong from having withstood hurricanes, floods and more alongside our community, and because of that we are confident in our ability to survive this event and come out on the other side better for it.
Supporting Texans In Times Of Crisis
Murphy’s Corporate Lodging considers it the privilege to have served Texas for more than forty-seven years running and is looking forward to at least fifty more. Our mission and values are sown into the fabric of the communities we serve, and like most families, it is our goal to band together during times of crisis.
With the arrival of Hurricane Harvey along Texas’ Gulf Coast in August 2017, that is exactly what we did as an industry. It is estimated that more than 185,000 homes in Greater Houston were either damaged or destroyed as a result of the hurricane. Comprehensive rainfall totals of more than fifty inches left thousands of Houstonians with waterlogged homes, some with as much as eight feet of water inside the home.
As a provider that takes pride in creating a home-like atmosphere for our guests, joining the industry wide shelter relief effort was a natural match with our mission. The combined efforts of corporate housing companies, apartment community managers, furniture providers, and utility companies, cumulatively helped bridge the housing gap during this period of recovery.
Many individuals that served as part of this housing relief team were personally affected by Hurricane Harvey themselves, but put their own interests aside to focus on helping displaced clients and families first.
Almost three years later, the Texas community is now facing another adversary in the form of the coronavirus pandemic. As states across the nation began to mandate their residents stay at home to help flatten the curve of the virus, many business executives traveling for work found themselves somewhat stranded.
Again, the corporate housing industry is stepping up to the plate with efforts to secure extended temporary housing for existing and new clients in need of shelter until it is possible for these individuals to safely return home.
