In late April 2010, the South Central Crisis Center operated in Mankato, MN under state operated services (SOS) closed its doors. The closing of the crisis center left a gap in mental health services, particularly for the ten counties it specifically served. Legislators in the Mankato area, specifically Kathy Sheran worked hard to put together a block grant through the Health and Human Services Act, which would allow additional funding for the reopening of the crisis center. Given that the grant went though, the operation of the new crisis center would be overseen by the South Central Community Based Initiative (SCCBI). In late April 2010, the South Central Community Based Initiative (SCCBI) announced a request for proposal (RFP) for crisis services whihc would include taking over the crisis center. The SCCBI was in search of a mental health agency that would assume daily operation and management of crisis services for the 10-county region. Horizon Homes, Inc. chose to submit a response to SCCBI's RFP for crisis services.
