HUMBLE, TX — The Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce was awarded the Community Impact Award from Insperity last week at the final Insperity company-wide meeting of 2018 because of their recovery efforts in the Lake Houston Area community after Hurricane Harvey flooded the community in August 2017.

The Chamber stood alongside Humble Area Assistance Ministries, who also received a Community Impact award.
Together, Insperity, HAAM and the Chamber created the Lake Houston Area Relief Fund, which dispersed $1.6 million to area residents and businesses, was the first of many recovery efforts for the Lake Houston Area.

Fourteen months have passed since hurricane waters affected 16,000 homes and 3,300 businesses in the Lake Houston Area alone, according to the Small Business Administration. Since then, the Chamber has spearheaded efforts to combat future flooding, including bringing area leaders and elected officials together to create the Lake Houston Area Long Term Recovery Task Force. The Chamber also hosted successful social and letter writing campaigns like the #PleaForThree, #Plea2See and #PleaForDDG, which brought state-wide attention and financial aid to the Lake Houston Area.

“We are truly humbled and honored to receive this award alongside our community partner, HAAM,” Jenna Armstrong, IOM, President/CEO of the Chamber said. “Insperity’s support and partnership has been unbelievable, so to be recognized by them is quite an honor.”

The Chamber continues their efforts in resiliency every day. More information about what the Chamber has accomplished can be found at
