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 Autism Society of Minnesota is a nonprofit organization committed to education, advocacy and support designed to enhance the lives of those affected by autism from birth through retirement.
They provide services to those newly diagnosed and from early childhood throughout adulthood.
They offer workshops, “skillshops,” camps, resources, mental health services, diagnostic assessments, functional behavioral assessments, trainings, and programs geared to transition age youth and more. All programs except for camps are open to people with FASDs.
Part of AuSM’s mission is ensuring that our laws and public policies support individuals and families living with autism.Tags: Adolescents, Adults, Adults with FASD, Children
