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.
Proof Alliance is committed to preventing prenatal alcohol exposure and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). In support of this work, each year we offer funding to eligible organizations in Minnesota that are interested in engaging their community through public events focused on FASD prevention. The events increase awareness of the risks associated with prenatal alcohol exposure, educate people of childbearing age on the importance of preconception health and planned pregnancies, and encourage safe alcohol choices and alcohol-free pregnancies.
