If you need help or don't understand a question, a staff member at one of our offices can help you complete your application or you can call us at 720-944-4DHS (4347).
You can return the application to any of the offices listed above. As long as you provide your name, home street address, and a signature, you can turn in the form to begin the process, but providing as much information as possible could help complete the process faster.
