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.
MOFAS charges a fee of $150/hour to do trainings, plus mileage of .55 per mile for round trips of 100 miles or more. However, if your agency cannot afford the set fee, please still contact us. There are a certain amount of trainings we do throughout the year that are free, and we are willing to work within your budget. Once you have contacted MOFAS with your request, we will get back to you to confirm your information. Because we have limited staff and resources, we are unable to personally accept all the training requests we receive. We do however have a Speakers Bureau who assists with training on FASD and one of those speakers may be asked to do your training.
