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.

Living on the Spectrum

Do you want to meet other people with an FASD who know exactly what you’re going through? At Proof Alliance we host many activities for youth with an FASD including social events, team building experiences, support groups, self-advocacy programs, and also one-on-one support. Sometimes you just want to be yourself and have a little fun! Join us for activities with people who understand by checking out our calendar for the latest events in your area.   

My Life with an FASD

Meet unique young adults, caregivers, and professionals that know first-hand the challenges of FASD. They share honest answers about what it’s like to live with an FASD. Their experience will inspire and motivate you with their courage and hope, learn more.

How Do I Know If I Have An FASD?

The only way to determine if you have a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is to receive an FASD assessment. Only trained professionals can make an FASD diagnosis. FASD is often misdiagnosed because many of the characteristics look the same as mental health disorders.1 Do you think you may have an FASD?
