Our Neighbors in Action segment today marks National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. The leader of one local organization has something in store to help spread awareness about homelessness. Mike Karl of Homeless Angels is living on the streets of Lansing all week with a camera, and livestreaming his experience to give the public a firsthand look at life on the streets.
