          Abstract

          objective: The objective of the paper is to evaluate the ongoing changes in specific life areas from the perspective of shelter users. design: In order to fulfil this objective, we have chosen a quantitative research strategy. Participants: The data was collected from 135 participants, people living in shelters for homeless people. methods: We used tailor made questionnaire based on metha-analysis. results: The research results show that the changes in individual life areas are interconnected and the users go through positive changes in shelters as well as negative changes. An important finding was the perceived relationship between the acquisition and keeping of stable housing and self-development, self-confidence, and self-efficacy. Respondent’s sex and length of stay in the shelter house were found to be important factors affecting the changes in life situations. conclusion: Based on the research results, implications for social work in shelters have been determined.
