Wow, what a benefit to someone that qualifies for this program.  Talk about free money. How long does this program last?

Hi Stacy,  I am meeting with the folks at the Dream program tomorrow.  As you know, we are already approved with the program, I just want to make sure I am doubly versed in the ins and outs.  Look forward to working with you to get these clients into homes in the best possible way!
