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.

Changing Course

What is Changing Course?

Proof Alliance offers Changing Course as an informational, educational and supportive series for women who drank alcohol and/or used drugs during their pregnancy. This an educational series discusses many of the issues that women who drank alcohol and/or used drugs during their pregnancy face, such as:

  • The shame, blame and guilt resulting from substance use, abuse or addiction during pregnancy.
  • The myths around alcohol and pregnancy. We are from every race, age, and socioeconomic status, none of us did this on purpose to hurt our babies, and although we do not all have addictions many of us are now in recovery.
  • The risks of prenatal drug and alcohol exposure.
  • The basics of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
  • Strategies for parenting a child who was prenatally exposed to drugs or alcohol.
