Sabina Matos emigrated from the Dominican Republic to New York City with her family in 1994, moving two months later to Providence. In her 17 years in the city, Matos has taken steps to grow and flourish as a leader in the community.

A 2001 graduate of Rhode Island College with a bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations, she has continued to develop her skills by entering the Latina Leadership Institute of the Rhode Island Latino Civic Fund as well as Leadership for a Future, graduating from both programs in 2003.

According to Matos, 37, it was during her college years that she decided that she wanted to work with the community, taking on a work-study with a local social-services organization. Matos, who became a citizen of the United States in 2005 and voted for the first time in the 2006 primary elections, was recently elected as a councilwoman in Providence.

She also serves as associate director of The Providence Plan’s New Roots Providence program, a position she took in 2008 following four years as an administrative coordinator for Making Connections Providence. Matos now oversees the grant-making and reporting processes for the organization, as well as analyzing the results and impact of New Roots’ work and coordinating training and special events.

Outside of her professional roles, Matos has been heavily involved in several other organizations, including the Educational Center for the Arts & Sciences, which brings Spanish-language theater productions to Rhode Island.

As a volunteer, special-projects coordinator and past board president for the educational center, Matos has helped the nonprofit present sold-out events and build community relationships. •
