Enabling dhcp relaying for the three VLANs on your switch should in fact solve the problem.

create 3 subnets, specify each default gateway.
configure your switchports belong to what vlan.
configure the router to be dhcp relay agent - specify the dhcp server.

if you dont have vlan capable NIC/router - then you should forget it.
vlan is not an NIC with multiple IPAddr in it.
