NOFAS-MidSouth is committed to reducing the stigma and improving the quality of life of those with FASD, their families and caregivers, as well as to mobilizing grassroots advocacy within the community.

NOFAS-MidSouth is committed to representing those with FASD, their families and caregivers in order to serve as a liaison with researchers and policymakers.
