How One Degree Works
Find community resources based on your location.
Save resources as bookmarks or create collections of resources.
Share your bookmarked resources or collections with students, families, and other educators and administrators.
One Degree has also built and currently maintains One Home, a free, nonprofit website that makes affordable housing listings easy to find for families in need. Refer students and families you work with to One Home, where they’ll be able to search for homes they’re eligible for, share housing information with others, and download housing applications.
