Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS),  an American organization addressing the needs of individuals with FASD and their families and caregivers, is well versed in support programs for those with FASD.

In the past, we have posted about their support groups for adults with FASD.

Currently, MOFAS is running several great programs, such as:

Growing up Class: Just for Boys
A class to support boys through the physical, emotional, and social changes that occur during puberty.

Funding the Metro Crisis Coordination Programs
Includes training and support groups for family, caregivers, and educators of individuals with FASD as well as social skills groups for individuals with FASD.

“Creating Your Family Portrait”
An art program where teens with FASD and their caregivers work together to create family portraits through supportive art processes.

MOFAS is also offering several retreats throughout the summer:

Young Adult Panel Retreat
