Hi Everyone -

I am seeking some help. I am a single mother and looking to relocate to Colorado with my young child. I would like to be located somewhere outside of Denver in a suburban area that is a good family town. I want a safe neighborhood for my son, a good school district, and a happy family town. I don't want to be scared getting out of my car, or worry about negative influences on my son. I know that nowhere is perfect, but I would like the best possible environment for myself and my son.

I would like to stay close to Denver because I am a social worker, and will find the best jobs in the city. If anyone could give me some good ideas of places that I may like that would be extremely helpful. I am planning a trip and want to visit these areas while I am there.

I love to snowboard, so would like to be somewhat close to a mountain. I would like a clean, safe, positive place to raise my son with good, happy people. I want to be in an area that has outdoor activities, restaurants, shopping, and fun things to do.

Also, if anyone has a good site for job listings that would also be helpful. My income is average, so I am not looking for an expensive place, safety is more important. Thanks for everyone's help!! Hope to hear from all of you!

If you want to stay close to Denver I suggest you post this in the Denver thread, they can be of more help.

But you might want to look at other main cities for social work, I know Pueblo as a lot and so does Colorado Springs. And Pueblo cost of living is a lot less.

Thanks for the suggestions! I am also open to living in other areas, I like Boulder. So it is not just focused around Denver. I just figured that is where the best jobs might be. Any insight would be helpful!
