How do I use One Degree text-to-search?
- Text (844) 833-1334 with what you’re looking for – a word or phrase, like “food stamps” or “shelter” or "legal aid"
- You will be asked if you would like to search in the zip code you are currently in. You can respond with either “Yes” to search for resources in that area or “No” to change the zip code. If you select “No”, it will then prompt you to provide the zip code you would like to search in, which you can just send in a message.
- You will receive resource recommendations one-by-one with contact information for that Opportunity. To see more opportunities, reply “Yes” and you will be sent the next result.
- If you have connected your phone number to a One Degree account and would like to save the Opportunity to your plan, you can reply with “Save”. If you would like to see the opportunities you have saved in your plan, respond with “Plan” and the first Opportunity you have saved will appear. If you used that Opportunity, you can reply “Done” to indicate that you successfully used that Opportunity. If you would like to remove an Opportunity from your plan, all you have to do is respond with “Remove”. If you would like to see the next resource in your plan, reply with “Next”. Once you are done viewing your plan, you can send “Search” to begin a new search.
