I drove by tonight and sure enough there were about a dozen people living in the bushes. More proof of the “great” economy!


Economy is fantastic. Most of these people are drug addicts and won't work. Nothing to do with the economy.

Oh it’s a makeshift camp? That’s no good!

I've noticed a significant increase in them on the west side as well.



Like EA said, the uptick isn't in mental patients. Just burnouts.

One graffitied my wall a few days ago... not happy about that....

I also worry because it is so close to Vanderburg and Twitchell elementary schools. Are there any other resources I can contact?
If you can't be at the Clark County Government Center to air your concerns, start tweeting about it to them and make sure you do the same to all the local news stations. Trust me they will do something about it. Last year, I noticed some less fortunate people were camping out at the empty lot at Desert Breeze Park. I twitted to all the news outlets and the Clark County Government Center that if something happens to my nephew who goes to school nearby and who sometimes walk by the park after school, hangs out at the park, Clark County Government will be liable.


They have money to give to the billionaires for the stadium, they better have money and help these less fortunate some of whom have issues.

Some of them are working minimum wage jobs, but don’t have the capacity to do anything higher paying. I know several people like that—they work hard but are still homeless.

Get on Nextdoor site and complain about it. That is how the news got involved and got rid of some homeless living around the summerlin costco.
People have got to learn to NOT give them handouts. That is the biggest problem. Let them get help in and around the shelters. Donate directly to missions.
I have a few homeless patients. They don't want help. Their family members give them money - they use it for drugs, alcohol, gambling. They will sell/trade anything of value that you give them clothing, toiletries, even wheelchairs which they need! Their relatives offer to move them in but they can't do drugs or drink- they refuse.

Santa Monica. They love them there. Buy them bus tickets.

To the new Homeless Village they built in downtown Vegas. Showers, dogs okay, bring your own tent, and social services available onsite. Sobriety not required.

Homeless Camps? Get used to them. After November we are officially a blue state. Embrace the change.

Here is one thing that i've noticed on my side of town is these Van/Camper/small RVs that are parked in public lots and residential streets that do not have houses on each side. These are people who are trying to save money or they are in homeless but have some mobile shelter. I know in some expensive cities this is a reality where people who earn good salaries will sleep in a Van/Camper/Small RV and save the rent money and buy a home cash down the line. They would use the Gym as a shower and dress for work. I've seen a huge increase this past year
