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).
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.
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.
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.
The Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) is the statewide organization serving as the leading voice and resource on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in Minnesota – standing up for the rights of the FASD community, providing education and training so FASD is better understood and working to ensure that all women know that there is no safe level of alcohol use during pregnancy. MOFAS understands that the challenges families living with FASD face are intense, and at times, may even be overwhelming. And that recognizing, diagnosing and treating FASD can be challenging.
Join us on November 14-15 and immerse yourself in learning, problem solving and discussing the latest information and useful tools in the field of FASD. Together, we will explore the spectrum and work on improving outcomes for our children, youth, adults and families living with an FASD.
