"Life in the Shadows" is an hour-long, documentary-style special airing on KSAT 12 and our streaming app on Oct. 24 at 9 p.m. The reporting explores what it’s like for people experiencing homelessness in and around San Antonio.

Steve Spriester is spearheading the special nearly 14 years after a similar project he led in 2005, which fueled the launch of Haven for Hope.

No politicians, no policymakers, no bright lights. It’s people living on the streets telling Spriester their stories, along with those who work with the homeless, showing the often heartbreaking reality of “life in the shadows.”
