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 most frustrating thing for me is how it affects him in school. It looks like ADD but really the two sides of his brain aren’t communicating.”
MOFAS Executive Director, Sara Messelt, talks about the Virtual Family Center, Family Resource Coordinators, and Love, Hope, Joy public awareness campaign.
Seems like on this holiday, everyone will be sipping tempting beverages. What’s a pregnant lady to do? Why whip up refreshing non-alcoholic drinks of course.

“I’ve searched my brain to remember what, if anything, my doctor told me about drinking during pregnancy, and am really not sure what he said.”
“Despite 40 years of research demonstrating risks of drinking during pregnancy, many are not convinced there is no safe level of alcohol during pregnancy.”
