Does MOFAS Provide Trainings? Yes.

MOFAS provides many different types of training throughout the year that are open to the public, and MOFAS also does private trainings for individual agencies or organizations.  If you are interested in having someone from MOFAS come to your agency and speak, please contact our Training Coordinator, Shauna Feine at with the following information:
  • Agency/Organization name
  • Contact person name
  • Date of training request
  • Time and length of training request
  • Where will you like the training to be hosted? Please provide the city.
  • Who will be attending the training (i.e. foster parents, special education students, etc…)
  • How many people will be attending
  • What you would like the presentation to cover (i.e. FASD 101, diagnosis, secondary issues, etc…)

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.
