The State of Washington Affiliate to the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome


In January 2005, The National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome launched its new Affiliate Program in an effort to unify the call for prevention, identification, and treatment of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). NOFAS and its Affiliates will undertake collaborations to build community coalitions, conduct public outreach, coordinate advocacy efforts, and create media awareness campaigns.

NOFAS Washington State was one of the first seven state affiliates chosen by NOFAS. Within our first year of operation we have achieved our 501 (C) (3) non-profit status, assembled a Board of Directors, and begun the process of strategic planning.

Some of our exciting programs and activities include FASt Friends Family and Community Support Network, and our FASD 5 day Family Summer Camp. (we have lost our current funding so summer camp will probably not be happening this year)
