LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– A project that would provide housing to hundreds of homeless in Lakewood is moving forward.

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless is working to take over land near the Federal Center.

The federal government recently approved their application for a plan to create transitional housing for between 200 and 250 people.
