ADAPP oversees two substance prevention community coalitions in the Bronx:
Throggs Neck Community Action Partnership (TNCAP) and the Forward South Bronx Coalition (FSBC)


Throggs Neck Community Action Partnership (TNCAP)

The Throggs Neck Community Action Partnership (TNCAP) is an urban coalition that has been working together to prevent alcohol and other substance use among our youth since 1998. Our membership of over 35 organizations meets monthly to plan and collaborate on projects that recognize and address the diverse needs of Throggs Neck in the southeast section of the Bronx, New York. TNCAP is under the auspices of the Archdiocese of New York Drug Abuse Prevention Program.

The coalition continues to thrive through current funding from the federal government’s Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act (STOP Act) from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and through the continued support from the NYS Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). Since its inception, TNCAP takes pride in implementing policy and environmental strategies that positively impact people’s lives.

TNCAP's Mission

The Throggs Neck Community Action Partnership is a group of committed public, private, and religious organizations and concerned individuals whose goals are to develop an awareness of and devise solutions to alcohol and substance use problems and other high-risk behaviors among youth in our community. The partnership meets and works to strengthen the coalition and implement prevention and intervention strategies through community collaboration. Our goal is to prevent and reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and its negative effects on children and families. In order to achieve these goals, we advocate for healthy and productive lifestyles and respect for the diverse needs of the Throggs Neck community.
