Latoya Prante – Program Manager

Latoya Prante is the Program Manager for our Metropolitan Area Transit Training Program (MATT). She had previously interned with DRMAC, working closely with the veteran’s population. She not only focuses on the veteran’s population, but also works with the immigrants and refugee population. Latoya just completed her degree in Social Work and joined the DRMAC team full time because of the diverse population we interact with as well as the amount of outreach we do around Colorado. She strives to make changes in the quality of care among older adults, people with disabilities, people of low-income, immigrants/ refugees and veterans. Latoya strives to touch on social work issues on all levels (micro, mezzo and macro) and feels she will get that opportunity here at DRMAC. Her background is in Geriatrics, mainly working on the psych unit. She received her CNA certification 10 years ago and has been a practicing CNA since. Latoya’s goals have always been to help people gain new tools for themselves to be as self-sufficient as possible and to provide the support where it is needed for our community!!!
