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.
Join us for a special afternoon with Deena McMahon to learn skills to begin having healthy conversations at home to talk about sexual boundaries, social media, consent, gender identify, and much more! Parents and youth will meet with Deena in separate sessions. Activities for parents/caregivers and youth will be facilitated by MOFAS staff when alternate session is occurring. Appropriate for youth ages 13-18 to attend and parents raising children ages 12+.
|Speaker: Deena McMahon MSW, LICSW is a licensed independent clinical social worker with a national reputation for excellence in areas ranging from attachment therapy and adoption dynamics to childhood sexual abuse and trauma.|
