A true believer in the Housing First philosophy, Walker’s goal for the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) is clear -- eliminate homelessness in Virginia Beach and make it rare, brief, and non-recurring. Walker began leading JCOC as Executive Director in 2012. He soon started implementing evidence-based practices to attain this goal by making emergency shelter and transitional housing programs low barrier and more housing focused. JCOC’s Rapid Re-Housing Programs incorporate Shared Housing strategies as an effective way to access affordable housing in Hampton Roads. Walker earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University after an outstanding college football career and Master of Public Administration degree from Troy University. After a brief stint with the Denver Broncos, Todd committed his life to serving others in the community for the last 30 years. JCOC was selected as the 2022 Non-Profit of the Year by the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.
