He Stood On A Corner For 3 YEARS Waiting For His Mom. This Woman Saw Him And Changed His Life

March 14, 2017

Every day for three years, residents of Kemah, Texas, saw a man standing on the same street corner and drove right by him.

Ginger Sprouse, who runs Art of the Meal, admits she was one of those people. But one day, she finally decided to roll down her window and ask him why he was there.

The man, Victor Hubbard, told Sprouse he's been waiting for his mom to come back and get him and he has no place to live.

Sprouse decided right then and there she was going to help this man build a new life.

Sprouse decided to share his story with the world on a Facebook page called "This is Victor."

"So, where to start? My name is Ginger Sprouse," she wrote on the page's first post. "I drive by Victor's corner at least 4 times a day. I listen to people talking around town and keep hearing 'someone needs to do something about that guy.' So, I will be the organizer and I hope that we as a community can be 'someone' together."

Slowly but surely the page started to take off.

Dozens of people volunteered to help the man, and Sprouse led the charge. She cooked meals, washed clothes, helped him set up appointments with a mental health professional and welcomed him into her home.

She created a GoFundMe page encouraging people to donate to help the "sweet, gentle man" get back on his feet. Within two months, Hubbard received more than $15,000 in donations.

Hubbard is currently working in Sprouse's kitchen.

"She came around and she kind of saved me," Hubbard told KHOU. "She helped me. It's like grace."

Thanks to thousands of his Facebook fans, Hubbard was also able to connect with an uncle from east Texas. And last week, he reunited with his mom.

Without Sprouse's help, Hubbard would still be standing on that street corner — and Sprouse wouldn't have a valued employee and new friend.
