Chemical Health and Recovery Grants
When given the right supports, mothers who are chemically dependent can be healthy, maintain sobriety and be good parents. The result is, children of these mothers do better. The Chemical Health and Recovery Grant program provides funding to support pregnant and parenting women in recovery. The goal is to reduce substance abuse among women in treatment and recovery through culturally, gender-specific, comprehensive and coordinated case management services. Programs are most successful when they meet participants basic needs, stabilize their family situation, improve their involvement in pre-treatment, treatment support, and post-treatment recovery activities in order to maintain optimal heath.

FASD Prevention Grants
MOFAS is committed to preventing prenatal alcohol exposure and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) by creating awareness of the danger of drinking alcohol while pregnant and increasing the number of women who plan their pregnancies and engage in healthy behaviors before becoming pregnant. This includes educating that there is no safe time to drink when pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant, and understanding how health behaviors like drinking alcohol while pregnant can impact a women’s health and the future of her baby.
