The Nation

Washington, D.C., activist Mitch Snyder broke ground for renovation of a shelter for the homeless he said will become a “model for the nation.” Snyder, the Community for Creative Non-Violence leader who was portrayed in a television movie this year, said the refurbished building will provide medical care, social and legal services and beds for more than 1,000. The District of Columbia took control of the federal building this year in a compromise worked out by the Reagan Administration and Congress. The city has title to the property as long as it is used as a shelter.
