Colorado – General Assistance for Single Mothers

It’s hard making it as a single mother but it’s even harder when you run into some kind of issue and need assistance. It’s not your fault but it does bring on unwanted stress and with children in the home, you don’t want your children to see that. At first you try to handle it on your own but eventually it finally reaches a point where you’re willing to accept that you need some kind of assistance. Now that you’re willing to accept the fact, you should know there are resources for you.

Understandably the search can pose a lot of stress and with everything in your life that is going on, you don’t need this right now. Fortunately I have designed this article specifically to help you or to at least give you an idea of what is available for you. If nothing else, you can decide what programs you can sign up for and if you qualify for.

Benefits: Colorado
website: http://www.benefits.gov/benefits/browse-by-state/state/CO
This provides you a list of benefits available to residents of Colorado. You can pick and choose which program you’re interested in and read up on the program. You can decide if it’s right for you and see if you qualify for the program of your interest. If you do, it does provide you with a link to go to apply.

Rental Help: Colorado
website: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/states/colorado/renting
This is a resource for those who need some kind of rental help or assistance. It provides links and resources for you to look over and if you need, you can apply for section 8. It’s definitely worth looking into if you are having rent troubles and if nothing else, you can get more information on other rental information.

Colorado Department of Human Services: Food Assistance Program
website: http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/CDHS-SelfSuff/CBON/1251580884676
Now this program focuses on providing assistance in food to low income families. All the information and how you can qualify is on this page, and the application can be found here as well. They have a page for contacts and frequently asked questions so anything you might want to know will likely have the answers.

Low Income Utility Assistance
website: http://www.energyoutreach.org/get-help
This gives you information about the energy utility bill assistance program. It offers information on paying your energy bills as well as other helpful links that could be useful to you. It’s worth checking out and seeing if it can somehow benefit you.

Government Assistance Programs
website: http://denver.helpingoutamerica.com/government-assistance-colorado/
Now this is another website that lists the programs available for you to sign up for. You can click the program name and it will give you information on it, similar to the other website above but it provides different information as well.

Now while I only listed a few links here, there are many other resources out there and I recommend you search for them. It’s always a good idea you do your own searches as well because only you know what’s best for your children and you, and only you know what will work for you. Don’t feel down if you don’t get fast results, sometimes it does take time, just keep your spirits up and keep the search going.
