Located in Franklin, Tennessee, BrightStone is a non-profit, 501(c)3, work and life-long learning program for adults who live each day with developmental disabilities.
BrightStone’s mission is to provide a comprehensive work, social support, and future residential community for adults with special needs, expanding their potential and helping them to develop mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We focus on their abilities, talents, and skills, offering programs that include visual, cultural, and language arts education, health and wellness therapies, friendships, and opportunities to gain vocational skills while exploring career interests.
BrightStone relocated to its 140-acre Land of Dreams campus last November, moving operations to its new 27,000sf Center for Learning, Art, and Enterprise. This move marked a huge milestone for BrightStone, as it serves as the next step in a long-term vision that includes expanding our programs and community offerings to include an events center, horticulture, equine therapy, and more. Beginning in the fall of 2023, BrightStone will also offer residential teaching homes for the first time, allowing us to provide lifetime care for those we serve.
