Assistance in Colorado

I have only been in Colorado for a little over a month now, and I love it. We have had a lot of financial hardships since we moved due to my sisters ex husband not paying his child support, so we have had to find places that can help. There is a local health clinic in Divide that is helping a lot. They help with medicaid, food stamps, medical expenses, dental, and other very helpful information. I am sure that this is not just here in Divide. If you are trying to find assistance in Colorado you should check with your local health department or WIC office to see what you can find. Both have helped me a lot. I am getting free female exams, birth control, testing for STD's (which I was not concerned about), and other services at the WIC office. It does not hurt to ask for help sometimes. Check out some of your local service if you are looking for assistance in Colorado.

Single Moms Needs advice if Anyone Can Help

A few months ago I posted about another single mom needing help. The single mom was my sister and I am now trying to take care of her kids as well as my son. My sister and mom both live with me, but they are disabled and fighting for there disability. We all moved to Colorado with a plan and the plan would have worked if her husband would have continued paying child support. Instead of wanting us to succeed he has told everyone back in Texas that he wants us to fail completely, so he quit paying the child support. He wants us to lose our home,  refuses to help with the kids clothes or school, he has even quit paying for the vehicle,.  so we will be losing the vehicle before long and everything is falling on my shoulders.

My family is not a burden to me and I would give anything for them. Those kids did not ask to be in this situation and I am going to do what I can to make it all work. I am currently working a full time job and looking for another one until the child support office can garnish his wadges. I am getting overwhelmed with everything and need some advice from anyone who can help.


Is there anyone in Colorado that may help with a vehicle?
I write online and do other things, but is there somewhere that pays a good income?
Who would as ask to see about assistance with rent?


Applying for state assistance this week.
Currently earn $1200 a month, bills without car or kids school expenses are more than $2000.

This is just a small breakdown of what is going on around me at the moment. If anyone knows any way of getting help please let me know. I am not one to ask for help, but these kids need help and I do not know what to do until I can get a second or even a third job. These kids all deserve to know that things are taken care of, and I want to give them that security.

Adjusting to Working Full Time and Being a Full Time Single Mommy

Wow things are so different this week. It is my first week to return to work full time and try to still be a full time mommy to my son. I am working evenings so I am missing putting him to bed, but I get up with him early in the morning to make sure that he has his mommy time. My family took him to an Indian festival in a town near hear yesterday and they got a lot of pictures of him with the Indians and even wolves. I know I am going to miss a lot of these things as he gets older. I know that I have to make sure he is taken care of, and no one else is going to do it. I am blessed with my Mom, she has been taking care of him for me while I work and I appreciate it more than she can ever imagine. Life is a struggle at the moment with working, being a single mommy, trying to make sure my sisters kids are taken care of, and making sure everything else in our lives is OK. These struggles will get easier and hopefully eventually go away once I get everything together.
