A group working with Lansing’s homeless population is moving from a southside hotel to a new facility in Lansing Township. Current State's Scott Pohl talks with Mike Karl of the Homeless Angels about the move and what it means to people seeking shelter in the area.

Mike Karl is committed to helping the homeless of Lansing. His organization the Homeless Angels just wrapped up two-and-a-half years at the Magnuson Hotel on the south side, providing shelter and opportunities to the homeless.

The Homeless Angels are now sprucing up a new facility, and Current State's Scott Pohl paid a visit to the Burkewood Inn on Lansing Road.
