Hello...I need help becoming an Independent Supported Living Provider for the Saint Louis, Missouri Department of Mental Health.


Hamid Conteh Lakewood, WA

I recently retired from the Army and purchased a rental property in Saint Louis, MO. I am trying to turn the rental property into an Independent Supported Living and was trying to connect with anyone in the field for mentorship. I have reached out to VETBIZ and have an upcoming appointment, but in the time being trying to use all the resources at my disposal.

Thanks and have a blessed day!
