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.

Minneapolis American Indian Center (MAIC)

The Minneapolis American Indian Center provides programs that are guided by strong Native values that include preserving and supporting cultural traditions through the arts, and intergeneration programs promoting healthy lifestyles.

The Bright Beginnings program at MAIC is supported by a MOFAS Community Grant. The Bright Beginnings Recovery Support Project is designed to assist American Indian women who are pregnant or recently delivered and who have a history of substance use disorders. The goal of the program is to help these families become stable, safe nurturing environments for their children.
