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.

Center of Excellence

The Center of Excellence is located in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis and run by People Serving People. The Center’s multi-generational approach aims to increase the stability of children in the community through direct services, including early childhood education, school-age support, and parental engagement.

The Center’s Early Childhood Development program provides licensed, high-quality care and support for children ages 16 months-12 years. It offers low child-teacher ratios and small class sizes for optimal growth and development. The classroom is sensory-integrated and nature-inspired. Program staff believe children learn through play in a safe, nurturing environment with consistent, predictable, positive relationships. Their curriculum offers a holistic nature-based approach integrating sensory experiences to support healthy social and emotional development to prepare children to be ready for learning and ready for success.
