This study was done in order to more comprehensively articulate the experiences of homeless women and make evidence-based inferences regarding optimal social services. This study used qualitative meta-synthesis methods. As youth, homeless women experience diverse challenging circumstances that leave them ill-equiped to prevent and resolve homelessness in adulthood. Resolution of homelessness occurs in stages: crisis, assessment, and sustained action. To enhance progression through these stages, nurses are encouraged to promote empowerment in concordance with the Transtheoretical and Harm Reduction Models. Services that are highly valued include physical and mental health care and child care assistance.
