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.

New Screening Grantees

Proof Alliance is happy to announce the four new recipients of our screening grants. Each of these organizations will incorporate screening for FASD into their current practices. Identifying individuals that may have an FASD can help connect them to an accurate diagnosis, appropriate services, and support. These transformative programs will be embedded in the continued work that these grantees do. We are excited to work with these organizations in 2019.

  • North Valley Public Health will implement the screening in their Family Home Visiting program, Head Start program, and preschool screenings in Marshall County.
  • Intermediate District 287 will implement the screening in their special education and alternative school populations in the Twin Cities west metro area.
  • Southside Family Nurturing Center will implement the screening in their therapeutic early childhood education and home visiting services in the Phillips Community in South Minneapolis.
  • Polk Norman Mahnomen Community Health Services will implement the screening in their Family Home Visiting program, which includes first-time parents, families using the Growing Great Kids curriculum, and universal newborn/postpartum visits to all families who reside in Polk, Norman, and Mahnomen counties.
