South Central Behavioral Services serves as the managing entity for two independent housing complexes in Hastings, Nebraska.


  • New Beginnings and New Horizons are both subsidized housing for low-income disabled persons, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
    • Applicants must be disabled by a major mental illness
    • Applicants must meet HUD standards for low income
  • All apartments are 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, with one handicapped-adaptable apartment at each property.
  • Rent is calculated annually and is equal to approximately 30% of each tenant’s gross income.
  • Application waiting list is typically short, but wait times may be long due to low apartment turn-over and priority applicants
  • Priority for renting vacant apartments is given to certain applicants:
    • Persons who are homeless or near-homeless
    • Persons currently residing in sub-standard housing
    • Persons whose living situation currently places them an inappropriately-high level of care (e.g. inpatient hospitalization or residential treatment facilities)
  • The management of New Beginnings and New Horizons may be contacted at 402-463-5684
