About Michael Arnold: G. Michael Arnold has been the President and CEO of The Midnight Mission since January of 2016. Prior to his current position, Mike was a Certified Public Accountant and also served as Executive Director of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA).

Mike’s professional experience includes Big Four international public accounting and executive management roles in the non-profit and government sectors, serving in executive roles with the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and large health systems and research institutes.  He also founded an independent consulting firm specializing in federal contract and grant compliance, health care finance, and organizational management.

In 2005, Mike was retained by the County of Los Angeles to assist in the assessment and restructuring of LAHSA, where he led the agency through a major financial reorganization and developed robust fiscal management and reporting capacity. Mike provided ongoing financial management consulting to LAHSA before becoming its Chief Operating Officer in 2006.  He was promoted to Executive Director in 2008, serving as Executive Director until December 2014.

Mike has been a major force behind the re-engineering and expansion of the Los Angeles Continuum of Care’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a HUD mandated data collection and reporting system designed to provide information on community’s homeless populations served. Under his tenure and leadership, Los Angeles City and County achieved some of their lowest homeless count numbers in recent history.  During his tenure at LAHSA, he focused on improving the effectiveness of the services offered to people experiencing homelessness throughout Los Angeles County and is a relentless change agent for integration and collaboration of services and housing for individuals, youth, and families.

Mike is committed to ensuring a full continuum of services and programs are available to serve all people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles. These include permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless people as well as solutions that provide pathways to housing and self-sufficiency for non-chronic youth, individuals, and families.

Under Mike’s leadership, The Midnight Mission has expanded its serves in Los Angeles to include both men and women’s shelter and bridge housing services, and has grown to be the second largest homeless service provider in Orange County.
