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.
As the nation’s largest statewide organization and resource on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), we understand the challenges families face raising an individual on the FASD spectrum and believe financial difficulties should not be one of them. This is the premise behind the MOFAS FASD Support Fund. Through the generous sponsorship of the Saint Paul Foundation’s William and Connie Carroll Endowment Fund we are pleased to open the application process.
These grant funds are restricted and are currently available for families in the East Metro residing in Dakota, Ramsey, and Washington Counties who are the primary caregivers for an individual with an FASD or suspected to be on the spectrum with another confirmed eligible diagnosis that experience hardships related to the increased cost raising an individual with special needs. The program provides financial assistance from $100 up to $3,000 per individual from the fund to assist with basic life needs and other expenses in the form of a grant – not a loan – so no repayment is required. To further ease burdens we can arrange to make payments directly service providers and vendors.
Please review the MOFAS FASD Support Fund Criteria to see if you or someone you know qualifies for a grant through the fund.
