Cheryl DeLuca-Johnson serves as the Brand Ambassador of Street Grace, an alliance of Christian churches dedicated to the eradication of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) in Atlanta and beyond. As the organization's founding CEO, DeLuca-Johnson firmly established the organization’s presence within the field and helped to solidify Street Grace’s niche within the faith-based community. DeLuca-Johnson has over twenty years of humanitarian work experience.

She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a background specializing in women’s issues, specifically women and addiction.

Prior to Street Grace, DeLuca-Johnson held several positions at Metro Atlanta Recovery Residences (MARR) and was instrumental in the changes that renovated their women’s program. She has also served on Drug and Alcohol Advisory boards, worked with World Hope International on women’s issues in Sri Lanka, and volunteered therapeutic services with Red Cross.

She is celebrating over 30 years of marriage to NBA broadcaster Ernie Johnson. They have six children: Eric, Maggie, Michael, Carmen, Allison, and Ashley. Her youngest four children are adopted from orphanages in Romania and Paraguay, and from the U.S. Foster Care system. Michael, who was adopted from Romania in 1991 and diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, lived a miraculous life of 33 years before passing away in October of 2021.
