Morris is the Deputy Director of the Burlington County Department of Human Services, one of the state’s largest and most multi-faceted agencies. Under her leadership, the department reaches marginalized and underserved populations and closes service gaps among Burlington County’s 450,000 residents. As a result of her leadership and contributions, Morris was invited to a roundtable discussion with U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development’s Secretary Marcia Fudge and U.S. Rep. Andy Kim to discuss how President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda could support local community revitalization efforts.

Morris obtained her bachelor’s degrees in English and Spanish from Hampton University and has earned a master’s in public administration with specializations in International Public Service and Community Development, from Rutgers University.

Morris credits her humble beginnings in Newark with giving her the drive to succeed, her passion to serve on a global scale, and catapulting her professional career. She sits on several boards and was appointed by the Burlington County Board of Commissioners to Chair the Minority and Equality Rights Task Force, the first-ever created in the county.

“She is also a proud member of the Rancocas Valley Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (RVAC). RVAC is very proud of one of our own! She is making strides in her professional career as well as her commitment to RVAC. Soror Malikah Morris was initiated into our illustrious sisterhood on April 25, 2021. She is a very active member of our Social Action Committee.” – Chapter President Pamela R . Hall-King
