Portrait of Kasey, one of the formerly-homeless teens from The Homestretch.

Update: Kasey Checks In

April 13, 2015 by Craig Phillips in Where Are They Now?

Kasey, one of the three formerly homeless teens portrayed in The Homestretch who are striving to make a better future for themselves, checked in just today to give us all an update on how she’s doing. After you watch the film, which premieres tonight, April 13 at 10pm on Independent Lens on PBS (check local listings), you will no doubt want to know, too. See below for this exclusive video:

We also recommend our interview with the filmmakers, a look at teen homelessness in America, and the official Independent Lens site for the film.


Special thanks to Will Thwaites, one of the film’s associate producers, for helping us coordinate with Kasey.
