Nonprofit Website Freely Connects Low-Income Individuals to Social Services They Need

Rey Faustino, who experienced poverty and had to make ends meet to help his struggling family, has launched San Francisco-based One Degree, a free website that connects economically disadvantaged people with nonprofits and charities.

According to Faustino, One Degree is more like “a Yelp for social services.” With its success, it’s now expanding its base into Alameda County. Faustino, 32, enthused that he and his team built the website “for the community, and we really hope this empowers folks who are everyday working-class families.”
