It doesn't spend as much time on the front page as the main "Who Is Hiring?", but you can always find it at that link. The next Who Is Hiring day is tomorrow!
I haven't used it for ~8 months so I don't know what it is like now, but in 6 months I was active on there, I made ~$20k, mostly web development stuff to add a single feature to an existing codebase, all open source.
One reason this works well is your friends aren’t likely to intentionally get you into a bad situation. They have an incentive to not screw you over :). They also know your skills and what you’d be suited for, helping to act as a filter... They also give you a warm intro to the client, rather than the client treating you like a faceless commodity on a freelancing site.
But especially LinkedIn. Connect with people and let people know you are available my making posts!
I agree there might be better paid gigs elsewhere.
I live in a costly place and that amount would be way too low to justify working, unfortunately.
I get that it could be interesting for learning purposes, but I prefer doing it for free and not being bound by a contract than being on a low pay

It really is a sellers market at the moment, so you can probably just call up random mid to large companies in your area and ask them what kind of projects they are trying to hire for.
If the thought of that makes you uncomfortable, your best bet might be to team up with an agency so that they'll re-sell you at a higher rate to their customers. That tends to cost you 20% of the project gross, but if it is a profitable project, that price of admission might still be worth it.
I have used them and can vouch for its high quality work.
