A non-profit in Lebanon has been looking for some help to get their new dreams off the ground.

The Empower Me Center has helped people with learning disabilities across Middle Tennessee, and right now it's looking for a new place to hold its popular summer camp.

They have been trying to raise nearly $2 million to buy land for the camp on Carver Lane.

Beyond the summer program, the group said it has dreams to build a recreation complex with more parking and opportunities for kids to play basketball and baseball.

“I can visualize it, and I can see it out here,” said Michelle Hill, director of the Empower Me Center.  “What I see are smiles, and what I hear is laughter, and that's what it's always been about for our camp.”

The Empower Me Center said it also hopes to build permanent cottage homes for people with special needs as part of the new center.
