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.
The Virtual Family Center provides online FASD support for families and caregivers in Minnesota. It is safe, private, and 100% “for caregivers, by caregivers” in the FASD community. Here you can find answers and resolve problems, get advice on navigating complex systems, and most importantly, connect with others who are walking the same path. To request to join the private Facebook group, go to:
The FASD Service Handbook is a tool where you can find detailed information about services your family may qualify for, as well as topics related to fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).
The Resource Directory is a database of FASD-friendly professionals and programs in Minnesota. This tool uses Google Maps to narrow your search and find service providers close to home.
The Caregiver Support Services team is just an e-mail or phone call away. They are available to provide resources and one-on-one support to families across Minnesota. They each bring a unique and diverse perspective based on an abundance of personal experience with FASD and prenatal alcohol exposure.
Proof Alliance provides ongoing family-friendly activities for adoptive, birth, foster, kinship, and relative caregivers as a way to foster strong families, build networks, and connect.
Specific activities and retreats geared for teens and young adults with an FASD provide social, recreational, peer leadership, personal growth, and volunteer and service learning opportunities in a supportive and supervised environment.
Support groups allow people to share information and discuss common issues. Most importantly, support groups provide the feeling that you are not alone. Proof Alliance provides support groups for all families to informally share resources, insights, and support.
Proof Alliance 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.
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.
Being around other families that understand is important. Proof Alliance hosts retreats for families impacted by FASD, where they can come together to have fun and relax.
The Circle of Hope (COH) Support Group is a network of women who have used alcohol and/or drugs during pregnancy. Together, we provide support in overcoming the stigma of addiction and FASD. We provide information, resources, hope, and support.
Proof Alliance understands the challenges families living with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) face. Proof Alliance offers people with an FASD, families, and caregivers a wide variety of supports, activities, and resources to help guide and support you through the FASD journey.
