Sarah Masih has worked in the space of homelessness, poverty, and behavioral health services throughout North Texas for over a decade. She received her Bachelors and master’s in social work from the University of Texas in 2010 and 2011, respectively, and obtained her clinical licensure shortly thereafter.

Through this process, she developed a passion for helping underserved communities and solving complex issues.

In this role, she provided programmatic and administrative oversight at the Carr P. Collins Social Service Center, along with programmatic oversight across Dallas County in 4 additional community centers. Through this work, she developed and implemented programs related to poverty, addiction, behavioral health, and homelessness across Dallas County.
Sarah has a passion for her profession as a Social Worker and designed both clinical supervision and MSW internship programs in her previous roles.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time outside as possible, traveling, enjoying time with friends and family, and tending her innumerable houseplants.
