In 1990, NOFAS was established in South Dakota where its founder Patti Munter had seen firsthand the tragic consequences of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome on the Pine Ridge reservation and among the Sioux tribes across the state.
In the 25 years since, hundreds perhaps thousands of members of the board of directors and staff, partners, donors, advocates, friends and volunteers have helped NOFAS strive to fullfill its goals to eliminate Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and care for individuals and families living with FASD.
25th Anniversary Events
Throughout the year, NOFAS and its friends will tell stories of the history, people, accomplishments, and unfinished mission to ensure a global community free of alcohol-exposed pregnancies. We hope you will share your reflections and plan to join us for the September 17, 2014, Smart Moms, Healthy Babies International Gala at the Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C., and at other events this year celebrating 25 years of NOFAS.
