Wealthy residents in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district have launched a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the legal costs of fighting a proposed homeless shelter, The Washington Free Beacon is reporting.

Residents of the wealthy waterfront neighborhoods near the proposed 200-bed Homeless Navigation Center already have raised $60,952 of their $100,000 goal.

Dubbing themselves, “Safe Embarcadero for All,” the group noted on its GoFundMe page: “South Beach, Rincon Hill, Bayside Village, East Cut & Mission Bay residents, businesses and other interested parties are organizing to oppose the Navigation Center proposed for Seawall Lot 330. 
“Given the multiple interested parties, potential legal costs and restrictions on the boards of our HOAs from taking independent action, our new group, Safe Embarcadero for All, invites you to join us.”

The Free Beacon noted the proposed location of the homeless shelter and the nearby neighborhoods are in Pelosi’s 12th Congressional District. It pointed to a Business Insider report that listed San Francisco’s average household income as $141,000.

One of the donors to the site appears to be Jerome Dodson, chairman of Parnassus Investments, according to the Free Beacon. His firm’s offices are less than a mile from the proposed shelter site.  The website said Dodson has contributed in the past to Democratic candidates.
