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.
From their website: Family Circle Counseling was formed in 2005 as an attachment-oriented psychotherapy practice dedicated to helping clients of all ages regain emotional health and practice new skills for living. Therapy can be brief, to reduce a troubling behavior or cope with a specific life change; or intensive when exploring how a family or person can recover from trauma, loss or complex illness.
Member therapists share decades of experience in residential treatment, community mental health, and training and management in areas of child and adolescent health, foster care and adoption, and trauma recovery at any age. We also share a deep commitment to working with adults and children from diverse backgrounds, for building from strengths, and drawing from a variety of effective psychotherapy methods to reach agreed-upon goals. We draw from our conviction that people do best when connected to others in healthy relationships and from a belief in the possibility of growth and change at any phase of life.Tags: Adolescents, Adoptees, Adults, Adults with FASD, Children, MA Eligible
