Channel 2 is Matt Johnson ] found his father, Simon Childs, and spoke to him Monday.
"I've been hard on my mother," he said.
The 21-year-old recently lost her mother and raises her young son.
"All I do, I want to work for it," he said.
When he heard about the photo that was posted on Facebook, he was injured.
"It's a little pain to see my picture up there, you know? I thought there was something negative and nobody would care about it."  But he was positively shocked when he returned to work and saw piles of softer ones donated to his son, supplies and clothing.
"They changed my life in a couple of days," he said.
Chefs Xavier and Theo Thomas own Fusion Chefs Eatery right down Glynn Street South.
"It just affected our heart," said Xavier Thomas.
Thomase's new restaurant gave them the opportunity to reach Childs to let him borrow a job interview car.
"It will definitely help him get around and give him a better opportunity," said Theo Thomas.
Childs said he did not have a bad will against the woman behind the Facebook record.
"I'm not homeless, not now, thanks to her," he said.
He looks forward to returning to his feet, in new pink shoes, donated to him in just the right size.
"I didn't think society would care enough to do it, but they care," he said.
Johnson spoke to the woman who did the Facebook post, and she told him of the camera she had never thought to be ashamed of a person in particular, and she posted it in a private group.
Childs said he has received job offers through all of this and is thrilled to have a permanent place for him and his son to live.
