Famous quotes containing the words housing, welfare and/or social:

    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    I have an intense personal interest in making the use of American capital in the development of China an instrument for the promotion of the welfare of China, and an increase in her material prosperity without entanglements or creating embarrassment affecting the growth of her independent political power, and the preservation of her territorial integrity.
