Notes

Colorado agencies have an unfortunate habit of randomly changing the URL for their web sites or information thereon so some/many of the links here may not work directly although the information is usually still on the web.
Call 911 or contact your local law enforcement for medical emergencies or if there is a risk or a danger to yourself, a child or another person.
2-1-1 — Dial 211 most anywhere in the U.S. for referrals for food, shelter, rent, utilities, medical, dental, prescriptions, senior assistance, and disabilities.
The Equal Justice Foundation does not provide 911, law enforcement, legal, or emergency services.

If you know of a site or place where men or women can seek help that isn't listed here we would very much like to here from you in order to add it to our list. Your help will help other men and women.

Anyone wishing to compile a list of such resources for their state to add to this compilation should contact the Equal Justice Foundation at comments@ejfi.org.

Note that you may need Adobe Acrobat to open a number of these references.
Colorado statutes are published by Bradford Publishing and they have many legal forms available online.
Colorado state resource center — Probably a good starting point.
State of Colorado home page
