Land of Dreams Capital Campaign

Our Land of Dreams is making dreams come true for families and individuals who have special needs. Our 140-acre property; 23,000 Stinnett Center for Learning, Art and Enterprise; and two residential homes (pictured below) – plus many other facilities we will add in the future – will allow BrightStone to grow into a model facility in the nation. Our Land of Dreams is already the first facility of its kind in Tennessee.
