|Résumé :||This study aims to identify and describe processes of change enabling achievement of stable housing among homeless individuals. Twelve previously homeless individuals who had maintained stable housing for a period of at least 24 consecutive months provided information through semi-structured interviews on the following topics: (1) the personal experience of homelessness, (2) the process of becoming housed, and (3) the role of significant life relationships. Only the second and third topic areas were included in this discussion. Eight categories were developed and analyzed from the qualitative interviews, including: work/employment difficulties, substance use and/or mental illness, cyclical nature of homelessness, personal motivation, housing-related issues, lessons learned, relationships with family/friends and relationships with service providers. The participants highlighted relationships with family, friends and service providers as central in the processes of achieving stable housing.|
