Life here is safe and comfortable usually quite, great place to raise children. Jobs here don't pay real good, but one of the best perks is most of the people that live here are very friendly and welcoming. I feel like all necessities utilities and food are affordable. People that love night life and partying this is not the place for you.
Russell Springs is a small town. However, working one on one with patients with patients each day has help me build relationships with the people in this community and I am forever grateful.
