The Live Near Your Work Program allowed me to purchase a home and supported me in being able to finance the closing costs.  It also encouraged me to learn more about the home buying process.  It allowed me to move into a neighborhood close to where I work.  I am happy with the house, the location and my neighbors. LNYW is a wonderful benefit for Hopkins homebuyers.”  Ed Markowski

“I  had a wonderful experience with this program after relocating from New York to Baltimore.  I contacted the office of Work, Life & Engagement and followed the given instructions.  Things moved along nicely and the $2500 bonus was very helpful with the costs associated with buying a house.” Cheryl DeScipio

“Live Near Your Work gave me a chance to be the first person in my family to own a home. The grant from Johns Hopkins University combined with other grants provided by the city of Baltimore, created enough funds to cover my down payment and some of the closing costs. The process was simple and painless. Now I can walk or bike to work and enjoy all of the diversity Baltimore city has to offer. I’ll be forever grateful to this program for making my family’s dream of land ownership a reality.” Sheila V. Graham

"The Live Near Your Work process and paperwork was very easy and processed quickly. The grant went towards my closing costs; decreasing the money I had to put down myself.”Valerie  Bahr  

“Now I have my own Home. A 1st time homeowner in my family. But better than that I've started a legacy to be able to help my family. By giving or leaving this house with my family members, when I'm gone. This program has helped me greatly and I too will help someone.  Thanks for letting me participate.” Mattie Gibson

“The LNYW program has been a big help and a factor in motivating my husband and I in buying our first house and become homeowners. We were so happy that the coverage area has been expanded and the location where we wanted to purchase a house was covered.  In no time, we had everything processed and a check was issued in time for the closing.  We are enjoying the area where we are now and we truly love our house.  A shuttle stop away from Hopkins which saves me time travelling to and from work.  Thanks to the Hopkins LNYW program offered through the Office of Work, Life and Engagement…a program that truly is beneficial to those employees wanting to live near where you work.”
