SUPPORT GROUP FOR CHILD ABUSE SURVIVORS:

A Modesto marriage and family therapist and one of her former clients have started an Adult Survivors of Child Abuse chapter. The chapter offers a free support group that meets from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on the second and last Monday of each month. Irit Goldman said she started the chapter with a former patient because she had seen too many people who could not afford to continue their therapy. For more, call Goldman at (209) 605-9626.

NONPROFIT EXPERT TO SPEAK AT GALLO CENTER:

A San Francisco-based expert in strategic development planning, board and staff development and fund-raising is returning to the Gallo Center for the Arts. Kay Sprinkel Grace is scheduled to speak Aug. 1 on how to improve nonprofit boards of directors and increase their fund-raising success. She spoke last year at the downtown Modesto arts center.
