RENO, NV - OCTOBER 6:  Mary Jackson, left, and her husband, Howard Jackson, live in a tent city for the homeless in downtown Reno, Nevada October 6, 2008. Mary works odd jobs and Howard, a veteran, works 18 hours per week, but they're unable to make enough money to afford housing. The City of Reno set up the tent city when existing shelters became overcrowded as Nevada struggles with one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. (Photo by Max Whittaker/Getty Images)
