Johnson is currently President and CEO of the San Diego-based Neighborhood House Association, one of the largest multi-purpose nonprofits in San Diego County. Having spent most of his life in San Diego, he is inspired by the struggles that families, children and seniors face each day to make ends meet and knows that the programs and services NHA provides make a huge difference in their lives and in the community as a whole.
