Formerly known as MOFAS: Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Exciting News
from MOFAS

If you're looking for the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) you have come to the right place. We have some exciting news about our organization. We have a new name! MOFAS has officially been renamed Proof Alliance. Our mission remains the same: to prevent prenatal alcohol exposure and to improve the quality of life for people living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).

Why PR%F

We now have the proof that prenatal alcohol exposure is a leading cause of brain injury in children. We have the proof that FASD is 100% preventable and people living with an FASD can reach 100% of their potential.

Why Alliance?

We seek to build powerful alliances with people with an FASD, their families, legislators, experts in the field, new partners, and community members to bring awareness, research, and services to this field.

What's Next?

Proof Alliance is rebranding, expanding, and we're moving! We have a new logo, website, and prevention campaign to help change the norms around drinking during pregnancy. And in May 2019 we will be moving to a stand-alone building. Proof Alliance commits to the people of Minnesota and we will continue to develop transformative programs to help Minnesotans impacted by FASD.

Metro Crisis Coordination Programs

Metro Crisis Coordination Program (MCCP) is a recipient of an 18 month Community Grant provided by MOFAS. This will provide extended support for families and individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

The grant will be utilized to provide training and support to families, caregivers (Residential and DT&H) as well as school teachers. We will also have the opportunity to conduct Social Skills Groups for individuals with an FASD.

Our sessions will begin in May with the following format:

  • Training:
    There will be two sessions and these will be offered over a 4 week period alternating a day time session and an evening session. These sessions will be about 2 hours and will include a meal and childcare will be paid up to $25 with proof of service.

  • Support Groups:
    These will run each week happening after the training session have ended offering two sessions per week, day and evening. We will request that participants identify two areas of priority they would like covered during the sessions so that these can be addressed. Each session will cover a specific topic to begin with.
  • Social Skills Groups:
    Groups will begin in May and run every other week for each age group, children-tweens and teenagers to adults depending on response. We hope to share some of what we are doing in Social Skills group with the Support Groups by the end of June.
