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.

Women in Recovery

What is Changing Course?

An educational series that can change the course of a life.

Changing Course is a series of educational classes for women who drank alcohol and/or used drugs during their pregnancy. This series addresses many of the issues that these women face, including:

  • The shame, blame and guilt they feel as a result of substance use, abuse, or addiction while they were pregnant.
  • The myths around alcohol and pregnancy. Not all women who drink during pregnancy are alcoholics, however many are in recovery. These women are from every race, age, socio economic level. None of them intentionally want to harm their children.
  • The basics of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and why using drugs and alcohol during pregnancy can be harmful.
  • Strategies for parenting a child who was prenatally exposed to alcohol.
