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.
Cermak Rhoades Architects invites young adults with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and caregivers to participate in a series of focus groups starting in April 2018. In the groups, they will seek your ideas for best practices in the interior and architectural design of supportive housing for young adults (ages 16+) with an FASD. Ideas from these discussions will inform design guidelines and prototypes for housing for young adults with an FASD. These guidelines will be shared with others with the goal of improving housing opportunities for people with an FASD that better support their lives as they transition into adulthood.
Focus group meetings will be held in Minnesota, at locations and dates to be determined. Separate meetings will be held for caregivers and young adults. A meal and monetary incentive will be provided to attendees at the meetings.
If you are interested in participating in the focus groups, please follow this link to provide your contact information: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/focus_group_invite
This event is made possible by a grant from the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Thank you for your time and interest!
