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.
If you or someone you know suspects prenatal alcohol exposure, it is important to act early, reach out and pursue an in-depth evaluation of your child. Receiving an assessment can help determine an accurate medical history and connect you with the supports needed to help your child reach their full potential. An assessment can help your family create a meaningful and effective intervention plan for relevant services and support. It can provide greater understanding and acceptance, and it can contribute to more positive long-term outcomes.
The Proof Alliance Clinic is open in St. Paul. Appointments are available for children up to 18 years of age. Find more information about the clinic and start the assessment process by contacting the clinic coordinator at 651-917-2370.
