Description

To outsiders, Homestead Heritage is an idyllic Christian utopia nestled in the hills of central Texas near Waco. But according to some former members, it is a cloistered compound that fosters child abuse. WFAA spent months investigating Homestead and uncovered a pattern of church leaders covering up child crimes, including sexual abuse and beatings. We submit our investigation, “What Happens in Homestead…,” for consideration in this year's IRE Awards.
