"It's also about the divide between the rich and the poor that is increasing that also brings me here. There is a crisis on our hands and people are losing their homes and we are not seeing wages increasing. The fact of the matter is it will bring more homeless people to the streets," Hughes who is a student at the School of Social Work at UNR, said of Reno's current development.
"A lot of times, we see people building all these nice gates and nice big homes keeping themselves away from impoverished areas and the distancing drives the separation. People should remember that the people on the streets are still people and no matter how they appear or the actions that they make, it could happen to a lot of people, so they should just remember to have a human heart inside of them."
