Emergency Assistance Programs in Pitkin County

Pitkin County is here to help you and your family when you are in need of financial, food or medical assistance. Our Economic Assistance team is available Monday through Friday to assist all Pitkin County Residents apply for economic assistance benefits. 

At Pitkin County Economic Services, we understand that life can pose many challenges. Often times, getting help can seem as difficult as putting together a 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle. We are here to help.

With so many ways to receive assistance, which ones are right for you? We’ll help you put the puzzle pieces together to figure out what program will best meet your needs. Please read our Helping Our Community Get Connected brochure in English (PDF) or Spanish (PDF).
