I definitely understand what you are saying and never thought I would be a person to have the mindset of living off of public assistance but my parents are kicking me and my daughter out and we want nothing to do with them or this area anymore so we are just exploring all of our options that won't put us on the street with a 10 month old right now. I am realizing in my phone calls and research that all states do have a very long waiting list for public assistance and that route probably isn't going to work for us anyhow. Anyways, I think some colleges I'm looking at offer family housing and onsite childcare, and work-study programs so that sounds like a better route for our family right now. Thank you for being so honest and helpful.

I just got a 1br apartment for 350 a month... and had the option of a 2br apartment for 450.

Check out craigslist and puebloareahomes.com to see rental options. I know there are some really nice 2br homes in Belmont area for under 600. It's how I found my apartment.

Given your precarious financial situation, I would not recommend up and moving to Colorado. I think the above plan sounds much better.

How very sad - and I would love to have my children live with me - but I know it doesn't always work out. My heart breaks for you and your family - I wish you the very best of luck. Kind regards.

Oy vay - what a mess - but I'm sure you know that by now...

Of course, if one of those colleges happens to be in Colorado and you can afford to make ens meet there, then more power to ya. The other problem is that moving itself can be very expensive, even without much furniture. You still have to think about how much it will cost to transport what you do have, meals and lodging out until you get settled, and then deposit and other upfront fees for your new residence.

I've no desire to advise you of what to do... those are just things to think about.

Colorado Springs has ok rents and you could probably find all of the vegan items you need here. I know of a few restaurants in Manitou Springs, directly west of Colorado Springs and on the entrance to the mountains, that cater to this type of lifestyle. Boulder and Fort Collins are expensive. Pueblo is cheaper for rent but I don't think they have the variety of vegan stuff you will want, but it is only 40 miles south of the Springs.
Buena Suerte-Good Luck
