One Degree is a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization creating modern, tech-driven solutions to problems that plague the safety net of social service and nonprofit organizations. Our core product, 1deg.org, provides thousands of local, poverty-fighting resources to families in need and our latest product onehomebayarea.org helps people find affordable housing.
