Homeless in St Louis

First off i am not trying to scam anyone..  My name is Shane and I live in St Louis, I have autism and I am staying a Motel 6 with my emotional support  cats.  I have high functioning autism  but my quirks and just the way I am irritates people and so I am kind of alone in this world except for my cats  who don't judge me.  I see all kinds of resources  and just wondering if there are any I could look  into?

Please be careful out there others can take you for granted & use & abuse you also along with scams imposed upon you.


Maybe with housing authority you can apply for housing even if its Public for now; you are on the list there is also Project Based Vouchers. Should you not have a local area code other than Motel 6 you may need to contact the United Way for a local phone # since you may not be able to utilize the 211 phone services.

Stay Safe

Take Care

Stay Healthy!!!

My Prayers for your Safety, Health, Protection, Guidance, Wisdom, Direction.
