Our MOFAS Mission
The mission of MOFAS is to eliminate disability caused by alcohol consumption during pregnancy and to improve the quality of life for those living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) throughout Minnesota.
Our vision is a world in which women do not drink alcohol during pregnancy and people living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are identified, supported and valued.
