Resources for Families!


One of the goals of the NC Fetal Alcohol Prevention Program is to provide resources for families who have a child with an FASD and professionals who work with pregnant women, women of childbearing age and families.

Please share these resources, and know that as new resources are made available, they will be shared on this website.
