Report of the first National Conference of the Skid Row National Coalition.
Abstract: This is the report of the first National Conference of the Skid Row National Coalition Committee (now U.C.S.N.). The topic of discussion was the analysis of major approaches now being used in urban core/skid row issues. It includes the following: some working definitions of "skid row"; summaries of the three approaches proposed in written and chart form including the assumptions, goals and strategies of the approaches; some examples of approaches; and elements of a comprehensive approach developed at Conference.
But it is unfortunate that on these new conditions of
Society a system has been constructed which considers
profit as the key motive for economic progress, competition
as the supreme law of economics, and private
ownership of the means of production as an absolute
right that has no limits and carries no corresponding
social obligation" Paul VI (Dev. Of Peoples #26)
