After leaving The Kids Kottage in 2012, Britney continued her work with adolescents at Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento, a shelter for youth in the foster care system within the Sacramento community. During this time Britney worked with the clinical team at The Children’s Receiving Home to improve the quality of care and create therapeutic programming, which fostered relationship building, skill building, and life skills.
