Arnold Place is an emergency and transitional home for homeless women, as young as 16 years old, and those affected by domestic violence and other traumas.
Tracy Arnold, is the Founder and Executive Director. n 2008, during the fall of the housing industry, as a mortgage broker, Arnold faced homelessness and first conceived the vision for Arnold Place. It became a nonprofit in 2014. Arnold, a former faith-based comptroller and loan originator, was devastated and leaned on her faith for a few years. In 2018, she became a multi-state real estate professional and began to self-fund Arnold Place.
