Rural America is thought to be diminishing. This would place Red Springs, NC in the discard pile—a place where it does not belong. Using an asset-based community capitals approach, I sought to explore and better understand my hometown of Red Springs. Through interviews with community leaders and by analyzing data from the U.S. Census Bureau, I present nuanced findings about the town. Namely, while the poverty rate of Red Springs is far greater than the national average, there remains a deep-rooted community spirit. This case study demonstrates the uniqueness of Red Springs and showcases its ability to withstand obstacles.
