  • Denver Poverty Resources Help Please

    I have to flee domestic violence in another country. I'm an American. I have SEVERE IC. One friend is all I have in Denver. she can put me up and feed me but she is in another world where certain aspects of reality are concerned and thinks it will all just work out and no matter how many times I tell her I won't have any money and disability takes a year she is VERY new agey and doesn't have time to help me find out things like if there is a waiting period for residency in Denver b4 you can get any medications or see doctors as I'm on opiates and benzos and can't just stop.

    I dont know what is available to me. I won't even have clothes for winter and am currently living where people where shorts now and I am so frail I'm in the warmest wool things I have to keep from freezing. she doesn't get any of this.

    the options in this country are BAD, you have to have friends or family which I have none of but this person in Denver. I'm scared because she doesn't get realities, just believes everything will be fine. I've known her 25 yrs and she's getting more and more into this attitude. she is heavily seriously in student loan debt, its been her way of surviving to find flaky programs that will take her so she has an income and I don't know what will happen when that bill comes due or when it will. Last I heard they wanted 600 a month from her and she's only qualified for low income jobs as she's studying consciousness. It's bad but she wouldn't hurt me.

    shelters wont' take me here because I'm ill.

    can anyone who is from there make a few calls for me to find out what access to medication and doctors I would have right from arrival, maybe salvation army could give me clothes, she only has a cot for me, she said her place is very small, I'm hurting on a new bed with a $200 memory foam mattress on it. I'll only just have $ to get there and have no idea how I"ll manage it all alone or bear the flight as I can't sit w/out pain.

    My thinking is poor under stress and sleep deprivation. If you can help at all w/ thinking of what resources there are, especially medication and drs, maybe food, $ for essential non-prescription drugs like laxatives, etc. If I run into trouble seriously would the hospital treat me?

    thank you thank you if you can help!!!

    I'm not certain about all states, but you should be eligible for some general assistance in Colorado. You might want to contact Womenspace there to see what's available.

    If you run into a serious problem, you can be seen in most emergency rooms.

        You got the wrong place. Many cities have places where women in need of protection can stay --- many places it's called Women Space or Womenspace --- you might check one of the on line telephone directories to find it.
