Roberta Clemens thought the program, GROW South Dakota, was too good to be true. After listening to Kelsey Doom explain the logistics of the program and all the great things GROW had to offer and visiting with family, Roberta decided to fill out an application for home repairs to be made to her home. It was a matter of a couple days when Roberta heard back from GROW stating that she met all the requirements to be able to make some repairs on her home. Roberta's original plan was to replace the siding on her home but after having a contractor come visit her home, he advised her that she would be better to replace all her windows instead. Roberta thought kindly to the idea that this contractor was actually here to help her and offer his advice. So Roberta replaced all of her windows in her home with the help of GROW South Dakota. When asking Roberta what she thought of the program, she stated, "This is a wonderful program and advises anyone who is needing help with repairs to their home and meet the requirements, then they should really consider this program."
