Mission

Creating a new future for adults recovering from mental illness through the positive power of meaningful work, community, choice and hope.

Background Thunderbird Clubhouse was established in 1990 as a program of Central Oklahoma Community Mental Health Center in Norman, Oklahoma. The original director, Nancy Carver was instrumental in creating the Clubhouse culture in the fledgling program. First located at the mental health center, the Clubhouse quickly outgrew the space provided and moved to a new location on 24th Ave. SW. The Clubhouse was located there for several years then returned to COCMHC. In 2000, Thunderbird Clubhouse was given the opportunity to apply for and was successful in securing a contract with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. This contract enabled the Clubhouse to strike out on its own and become a free-standing Clubhouse and non-profit. On December 7, 2000, Thunderbird Clubhouse opened its doors as Oklahoma's second free-standing Clubhouse. In 2001, it received its first certification from the International Center for Clubhouse Development. It has maintained ICCD certification since that date. When the Clubhouse became a free-standing agency, the next goal was to own land and a new facility. That dream became a reality when we broke ground on December 4, 2007. We moved into our new facility at 1251 Triad Village Dr. Norman, Oklahoma on September 1, 2009. We continue to be a sanctuary for adults in the community who are recovering from mental illness and helping them with recovery goals including, but not limited to, housing, employment, education, health and wellness, and social support.
CEO/Executive Director Statement I am proud to be a leader for Thunderbird Clubhouse. Our agency is unlike any other in the community; it is truly peer led and supported. Our agency acts as a sanctuary for vulnerable individuals and for those whose lives have been impacted by mental illness. Members find that with time and work, they see themselves as more than their illness. They regain things they may have lost such as family relationships, friends, a job, or a place to live.

Strategy
Population Served Adults
Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. The number of individuals we serve grows each year. Each of these individuals comes to us with employment, housing and educational needs. We are pleased to say we address all of these needs as well as give "members" a place to belong.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. We have grown from a state operated mental health program to an independent, accredited agency. We have expanded funding from one source to multiple sources including United Way of Norman, Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services and Housing and Urban Development.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. We track multiple statistics regarding the number of members we help secure housing, employment and education. We track the length of employment and their ability to stay in permanent housing. We also track outcome measurements biannually by collecting surveys from our members to ensure our programs are effective and member-driven.
Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments While are programs are not clinical, the nature of the work members experience at Clubhouse is therapeutic. It provides structure, meaning, and hope for members. We are currently at risk of losing many of our services if funding from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services gets cut again. Meanwhile, we are looking for creative ways to keep our programs alive if this were to happen in the future.
