Smith decided that the numerous young married couples and adult single folks who belonged to the Woodlawn Baptist Church were not adequately being served with parish social activities as they existed.

The MetLife Foundation recognized the Pawtucket Citizens Development Corporation (PCDC), the Pawtucket Police Department and the Central Falls Police Department for their creative efforts to improve quality of life and build a strong multi-city and multi-agency partnership to address crime in the Barton Street area.
