About Us

The FASD Network of Southern California is a resource for parents, caregivers, advocates, educators treatment professionals and others interested in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and in the estimated one in 20 persons who are affected by this lifelong neurodevelopmental disability.

We offer training and support services to individuals, groups, and organizations. All of our activities target helping FASD-affected individuals in Southern California, and their families, to be as healthy and productive as possible.

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit charitable organization.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life — through information, advocacy and service — for children, adolescents and adults in Southern California affected by prenatal alcohol exposure, and to empower those who care for or serve them.

Our Vision

Our vision is that every person in Southern California who is affected by prenatal alcohol exposure has the resources and the opportunity to achieve his or her fullest potential in all aspects of life.

 

Who We Serve

This Network is targeted to persons who live or work in San Diego, Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and/or Kern Counties.

Anyone whose FASD-affected client, student, patient, coworker, romantic partner, neighbor, friend, or family member lives or works in Southern California may also participate in the Network.

What We Do

Network members participate in our email discussion group, join our Facebook group, encourage anyone they know to follow our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, attend occasional training workshops sponsored by the network, and may attend network meetings. All of our activities allow participants to share experiences, network ideas and resources, learn about current issues, and explore strategies to help FASD-affected individuals succeed.

The Network is not a state affiliate of NOFAS. (Those organizations usually include the acronym NOFAS in their names.) 

The Network is recognized as a California Family and Community Resource with NOFAS.
