Todd Walker

Walker began leading Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) as Executive Director in 2012. His goal for JCOC is clear — eliminate homelessness in Virginia Beach; tackle recidivism; and ensure homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring.

Originally from Ohio, Walker earned honors in football and basketball before accepting a football scholarship to Indiana University. Walker graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. After college, he signed a free agent contract with the Denver Broncos Football Organization. After a brief stint in Denver, he committed himself to working in the Human Services field.

Walker earned a Master of Public Administration degree from Troy University as a member of the Pi Alpha Alpha National Honor Society in 2011 and Certification in Executive Leadership from Cornell University in 2017.

Having served in leadership positions for over 26 years, Walker's experiences include working in the areas of substance abuse, mental health, juvenile justice, adult corrections, and homelessness. He has received certifications and training in areas including Housing First, Trauma Informed Care, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention, and Non-Profit Management.

Walker was awarded the Daniel M. Stone Humanitarian of the Year Award from the Virginia Beach Human Rights Commission in 2018.
