I am opening this page up for comments and any related information that you think would benefit others. If you decide to provide any information, please make sure it is as relevant and up to date as possible.
I Hope This List Proves Beneficial…
Here you will find reference numbers and contact information for emergency rental and or utility assistance. Funds available can change from month to month, week to week or even day to day.
Although the information listed here is provided for Colorado residents, should you be from another state, most states have their versions of much of the information below (such as Leap, Salvation Army and United Way…) So, try doing a keyword search for those + the name of your state.

United Way Dial 211 – is probably the most comprehensive and universal resource for these kinds of assistance. Here in the Denver Metro Area, that number is 211. However, your state or county should have a comparable public service, if indeed it isn’t United Way so check with your local operator or do a keyword search for your state + United Way (or some similar configuration…)
Blessings and Good Luck!
