There are some programs that may help. We are not sure, but we can provide you phone numbers and contact information for you to call. Use this link to find the El Paso County assistance programs and agencies. Make some calls here. A good place to call is Pikes Peak Community Action Agency. Ask about the weatherization program which may help with furnace repairs. Also ask about Energy $avings Partnership Program as well as Energy Outreach Colorado.
Find many more programs specific to utility assistance in Colorado from this resource. Keep calling around.

I am a mother of three and a wife of a rare find these days. I was recently diagnosed with cancer. I have been increasingly ill for the last four months which led to my diagnosis. Lost my job as a result of being ill, and my family and I were evicted. Now we are facing having our vehicle repossessed.
My husband, works EVERYDAY, to try to keep us afloat. I have surgery to try and remove the cancer in the next few weeks. We live in Colorado Springs, CO and I am begging you to please respond, even if you can't help, ASAP. My family has been through a lot in the last few months, this would be devastating and detrimental to our family.

There is not much anyone can really do with a car payment/repossession issue. Maybe try credit counseling in Colorado for advice. There may also be some charities that focus on assisting cancer patients, including arranging a ride for them for their jobs and what not. So while we did respond, you are right in that there is not much we can do.
