Britney Gay joined the Sacramento community in 2015 after relocating from Reno, NV. Britney began working with mental health consumers in 2007 at an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children, The Kids Kottage.
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.
Following Children’s Receiving Home Britney joined the team at Sacramento Job Corps, a trade school for transition-aged youth seeking to earn their high school diploma and learn a trade. As the Social Development Director Britney provided oversight for the Residential, Recreational and Student Leadership departments. Britney created structure and stability for the 300 students living on campus through the creation of a personal development program that focused on educating students on social skills, healthy relationship building and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. One of Britney’s most popular programs at Job Corps was the Read to Lead program in which participants visited local elementary schools and read to elementary aged children. Participants were able to give back to the community, learn social skills and leadership skills.
Through each of her positions, Britney found herself working with victims of trauma and through this work found her passion and dedication to assisting and healing others. In 2009 Britney received an award recognizing her for her dedication and outstanding care of her clients by Roy Adams, CEO of Adam’s and Associates.
