Neal Shytles has been living at the union mission in Norfolk for more a year.

He reached out to NewsChannel 3 to help connect him with someone that would take him in.

And tonight we are happy to report that Neal is in for a very happy thanksgiving.

"I really appreciate, you know, you and WTKR because none of this would've happened. You know, and I'm really thankful and it's going to really mean a lot at Thanksgiving,” says Neal.

Tomorrow on NewsChannel 3 at 11, we'll hear more from Neal and the Peninsula family who will be having dinner with him.
