Troy and Beverly Johnson have been licensed therapeutic foster parents at Abbott House since 2011. Since that time, they have opened their home to 24 children in care at Abbott House, including older teens and some with challenging behavioral issues, including autism. The family has provided children with stability, structure, guidance, positive role models, mentors, and unwavering love and support. Mr. Johnson became a pastor in 2003 and founded Greater Love Deliverance Center in the Bronx, NY, and Greater Love Deliverance Center II in Walden NY. He and his wife Lady Johnson are actively involved in their church fellowship and champions for children in care.
