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.
Caring for ourselves and our children as they transition to adulthood
Come for support and discussion about the joys, stresses and challenges we face as our children with an FASD strive for more independence. Topics may include guardianship, sexuality, financial protections, housing, employment, navigating social services, and preparing for support when we are no longer living. Learn and share techniques for lowering our own stress as we meet the challenges of this stage. This group is most appropriate for parents/caregivers of children over age 14 (no upper age limit).
When: Meets the 3rd Thursday of the month
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Where: Proof Alliance, 1876 Minnehaha Ave. W., St. Paul, MN 55104

Note: this support group coincides with the monthly YouthACT Thundercats meeting, but is open to parents and caregivers regardless of their child’s participation in YouthACT Thundercats.
