Community Building

St. Bernard is a close, tightly-knit community, and we enjoy opportunities to gather in celebration and to work together to plan for our future. The Meraux Foundation’s community building programs are designed to nurture this culture, bringing people together and facilitating civil discourse. The Foundation hosts and sponsors many events throughout the year, ranging from festivals to informational meetings. And it leverages its network and links people and organizations together to address some of the Parish’s most pressing issues, like coastal protection and economic development.
