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.
The Proof Alliance Virtual Family Center is a safe online gathering place for families in Minnesota. It is 100% “for caregivers, by caregivers” in the FASD community.
This forum is for birth, foster, adoptive, relative, and kinship caregivers to connect with one another and share resources, information and support. This group is NOT intended for people whose sole connection to FASD is professional, or for people living with an FASD unless they are also raising children on the spectrum.
Here you can find answers and resolve problems, get advice on navigating complex systems, and most importantly, connect with others who are walking the same path. To request to join the Facebook group, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProofAllianceVFC/.

And the Virtual Family Center is the only site 100% for supporting the FASD community in Minnesota. Questions? Contact JoLynn De Campos Salles at 651-917-2370.
“It’s nice to know that this forum is just for FASD parents. It will be nice to share with others that understand, sometimes nothing is going to work yet we wake up in the morning, ready to try something new yet again!”
