Johnson's retirement will be effective at the end of June, but he will continue to work as a part-time consultant.

The Rescue Mission, which relies on private donations, is one of the region’s largest homeless providers. It offers a variety of programs including transitional housing, job training and an emergency shelter for women and children. It also runs a preschool for homeless toddlers.

Johnson discusses Thursday on Midday Edition, some of his major accomplishments and how San Diego's homeless crisis has evolved over the years.
