A new report from Focus Ireland has found that 95% of people it housed last year had not returned to homelessness six months later.
Up to 288 people housed by the charity were surveyed over a 12-month period in 2017.
Director of Advocacy at Focus Ireland, Mike Allen, said it is a good news story in the midst of a housing crisis.
Mr Allen said: "Six months after we spoke to these households, individuals and families, 95% of them are still in the homes that they were in when they disengaged from our services.
"That's a really good news story, it shows that even when we are in the middle of a homeless crisis the types of intervention that Focus Ireland staff make can really transform people's lives. We just need to make sure that we can do more of it."
