Dear Friend,

Tuesday, June 2, 2020 was a historical moment for JCOC and those we have the privilege of serving every day. The Virginia Beach City Council unanimously approved our Campus Rebuild plan!

This incredible news means that after eight years of diligent preparations, we have the support of the City of Virginia Beach to build our multi-use building. This includes 38 affordable apartments for single adults, dining hall, kitchen, food pantry and office space. In addition, the number of parking spaces will increase.

Thank you for taking the time to call and email our Mayor and council members! You made a difference!

Your prayer and financial support in the coming months is critical as JCOC’s board of directors, leadership and staff take the next steps. These steps include launching a Capital Campaign, forming a timeline, and making a lot of contract and logistical decisions. All the while, our food and housing programs continue to help the hungry and homeless in Virginia Beach every day.

We will keep you, #TeamJCOC updated throughout this exciting project – from Capital Campaign to demolition, to ribbon-cutting!

Todd Walker
Executive Director
