Our Flagship Projects

Jardin Vert de Josette School was founded by the Bernard family in remembrance of Josette Bernard. Situated on 3 acres of land, the school provides pre-k education and serves as a community center for local children on the weekends. Giovani Bernard, son of Josette and member of the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, created the Bernard Family Foundation to honor his mother, with a mission that all proceeds will benefit the Jardin Vert de Josette School.
