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.

The Resource Guide is a tool where you can search detailed information about services your family may qualify for, and topics related to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

Resource Directory

The Resource Directory is a searchable database of FASD-friendly professionals and programs in Minnesota. This tool uses

Family Engagement Coordinators (FECs)

Your Family Engagement Coordinator team is just an email or phone call away. FECs are available to provide resources and one-on-one support to families across Minnesota. Each FEC brings a unique and diverse perspective based on an abundance of personal experience with FASD and prenatal alcohol exposure.

Family Activities

MOFAS provides ongoing family-friendly activities for adoptive, birth, foster, kinship, and relative caregivers as a way to foster stronger families, build networks and connect with other families.

Youth Activities

Specific activities and retreats geared for teens and young adults living on the spectrum provide social, recreational, peer
leadership, personal growth, and volunteer and service learning opportunities in a supportive and supervised environment.

Support Groups

Support groups allow people to share information and discuss common issues. But most importantly, support groups provide the feeling that you are not alone on this path.

MOFAS provides all kinds of support groups for adoptive, birth, foster, kinship, and relative caregivers to informally share
resources, insights, and support.

Classes

MOFAS offers ongoing opportunities to learn about FASD and teach others to better understand your child.

The Hand in Hand series is a recommended first step for families and caregivers to explore the spectrum of this disorder and identify strategies that promote success.

Hand in Hand Series

Part 1- The Basics of FASD

Part 2- The Challenges of Life with an FASD

This is an opportunity for caregivers of children who have received or suspect an FASD diagnosis to come together and learn about FASD in an informal and supportive setting.

Family Retreats

Being around other families that understand is important. So, several times a year, MOFAS hosts weekend retreats for families living with an FASD, where they can come together to have fun and relax.
