DEARBORN — Hassan Fayad of Dearborn, CEO of 411 Therapy, helped a homeless man who was beaten get a haircut, clothes and job following a story aired on local TV news.
WXYZ Channel 7 aired the story of homeless man John Boble June 3 with a video showing how he was assaulted by a security guard in Detroit.
Fayed sent help to look for Boble that night, but was told he missed him by 30 minutes, according to Channel 7. Fayed’s efforts paid off the next day when Boble was located and taken to 411 Therapy, 23265 Northwestern Highway in Southfield.
During his time at the physical therapy business, Boble was offered new clothes, a haircut, cell phone, shower and $1,000 donation to help him support his wife and three children.
Boble also was offered haircuts for the next year, and a new job at 411 Therapy with transportation to and from the business until he learns to drive, followed by a new car, Channel 7 reported.
“I know how to feel not to have money, not to have a job especially the most important thing when someone does not believe in you basically just because of your past,” Fayed said.
The 411 Therapy corporate attorney also is moving forward to bring a case against the female security guard who allegedly assaulted Boble.
According to Channel 7, Fayed is offering to be a mentor for Boble and pay for substance abuse.
“He’s the best person ever,” Boble said of Fayed. “He looked out for me, blessed me. New start, changed life.”
