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.

You can help us Make it Happen

MOFAS is kicking off our end of year fundraising campaign. As you know, MOFAS does extensive work to support the FASD community: We lead policy initiatives; we spearhead provide public awareness campaigns about the dangers of drinking during pregnancy; and we offer support and services for caregivers and individuals impacted by FASD. But we still have more work to do – and we can’t do it without you.

Tiffany is a birth mom of a child with an FASD. She wants people to hear her story in hopes it will prevent other women from drinking during pregnancy. Watch Tiffany’s video here. Want to see more messages about the dangers of drinking during pregnancy? Then join Tiffany in the effort and donate. With your help, we can Make it Happen.
