You may have noticed all the million-dollar homes in Colorado that keep getting posted on our sites. Yes, they're beautiful, and yes, they are dreamy. But I'm also one of the many folks in Colorado who struggle to make ends meet. I'm also a Coloradan who will never be able to afford those beautiful homes we see every day.

So when I see those stunning castles, I tend to get sad. I often think about all the times I've come to a crossroads, only to struggle to survive in this world. I know I am not the only one. But what I don't see is Colorado posting enough about the homeless problem we have in our state.

You see many people avoiding them on the streets. You see how others tend to look the other way, and most of the time, we see others disrespecting those in need. Don't get me wrong, it's not everywhere or everyone. But it is enough to notice, and it's a crummy reminder to see what we all fail to possess.

I am not the only one in Colorado who struggles to survive. We have all noticed the ridiculous price of rentals these days as well, and families are getting tossed in record numbers. These high rental prices have forced many families out of their homes and unto the streets.

Before we take a peek at the other side of Colorado. Here are some places that could help those who are on the streets.

LONGMONT, CO - SEPTEMBER 21: An eviction team removes furniture during a home foreclosure on September 21, 2011 in Longmont, Colorado. The family had already moved out of the four-bedroom house, leaving some furniture to be removed to the street after the sheriff's department served the court order for the eviction. Although sales of previously owned homes have risen nationally, the glut of foreclosures is expected to keep the rise in home values below the rate of inflation for years.

President Trump has proposed a national budget that would terminate federal support for Amtrak's long distance train services, which would affect the California Zephyr and other long distance rail lines run by Amtrak.

10 Poorest Towns in Colorado

There's nothing like living among Colorado's gorgeous landscapes; beautiful mountains, rivers, and deserts pepper the state. We all know, however, that the state's economy varies from town to town.

As a whole, 12% of Colorado's population lives at or below the poverty line. Compare that to the national average, 14.8% (2014) and we don't look too bad, but we're not looking too good either.

Just for the record, Grand Junction ranks #200 at 11.43% at or below the poverty level.

Here are 10 of Colorado's poorest towns:
