Walker Sands purchased a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) when he bought his first home, a condo in Petworth (Ward 4) with down payment assistance from DC Open Doors in 2018.
“Open Doors helped me secure a down payment to purchase a condo in one of my favorite D.C. neighborhoods, Petworth. As a homeowner here, I feel a duty and an honor to preserve the neighborhood’s community and contribute to D.C.’s growth.”
“DC Open Doors promotes progress and preserves communities in our capital. I am so proud that this program has been kept alive because it kept my dream of homeownership alive. As a community organizer and black professional, me and many of my friends have been able to stake a claim in the District we love. Most importantly, I see Open Doors as a proponent of the middle class and socioeconomic opportunity for all. This is an invaluable opportunity to create and define your value in D.C. and in your life.”
