LaneStaffing and the Houston Area Urban League (HAUL) have announced plans for LaneStaffing to open a branch office at the HAUL headquarters in Downtown Houston. The office will serve as a hub for job seekers to find employment and training in crucial job skills. The HAUL location will supplement LaneStaffing's North Houston site and its corporate office located at 2211 Norfolk, Suite 150, Houston, TX 77098, in addition to its offices in Dallas, Port Arthur, Beaumont, and Orlando.

LaneStaffing recruits and places professionals in varying industries, while the Urban League assists individuals with housing, education and business development. The two entities expect their combined resources to better serve the Houston community.

"We are excited about the partnership with LaneStaffing as it complements our holistic approach to help rebuild the local community. HAUL is engaged in the National Urban League's 'Jobs Rebuild America' initiative designed to employ, educate and empower communities with comprehensive services developed and executed by way of agreements that create new opportunities between the private sector and non-profit community," stated Judson W. Robinson, III, president and chief executive officer of HAUL.

"It is a privilege to work with an accomplished organization such as HAUL," says LaneStaffing CEO Carla Lane. "Together, we hope to enhance our abilities to assist clients with their goals of prosperity and independence."
