The S.M.A.R.T. Center is located in Salazar Park in SW Selma at 1800 Sheridan. It is a non-profit, multipurpose community center run by a collaborative effort of its board members, local churches, private supporters and volunteers. All of us have one goal in common: To give back to the community of Selma by offering the community a safe place to meet. We provide valuable services to the neighborhood. One of the ways First Christian Church participates is by providing and distributing bags of food to members of the community on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. You are welcome to come and help!
