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.
If you are concerned that your child was exposed to alcohol during pregnancy, know that there is help and hope. The Proof Alliance Diagnostic Clinic is here to help families and caregivers answer their questions and provide support before, during and after the evaluation process. Seeking to understand the challenges you are facing because of potential prenatal alcohol exposure is one of the most important steps you can take. It is our goal to make this as easy, and as positive of an experience as possible. Please let us know if you have any questions.
The Proof Alliance Diagnostic Clinic is located at 2233 University Avenue West, Suite 395 in St. Paul. Appointments are available Monday – Thursday, 8 am – 4 pm and Friday from 8 am – 1 pm for children primarily between the ages of 2 – 17.
