A sector of assistance to homeless people has been developing in Russia in the last 20 years. However, the problem of homelessness remains one of the most acute social problems in Russian society.

This work is devoted to the study of the role of social assistance institutions in the life of homeless people. The stated objectives of the study, firstly, is to determine the impact of social institutions on the lives of homeless people, and secondly, to establish what omissions there are in the provision of social services, and with what mechanisms they can be eliminated.

To achieve the objectives, 15 interviews with the wards of the social organization and 5 expert interviews with staff have been collected during the study. This allowed us to obtain information about the subject of the research from two fundamentally different points of view. The study was conducted in the State institution of the Center for Social Adaptation for persons without a specific place of residence and occupation. of E.P. Glinka, the branch of Lublino.

As a result of the study, the following main conclusions were obtained. The positive role of the institution, which was to provide domestic assistance: food and overnight, was revealed, rarely it was noted that social assistance contributes to the resocialization of the homeless. In other words, in rare cases the provision of social services serves as a springboard for getting out of the state of homelessness, but more often the institution saves homeless people from living on the street and gives them a "home" in a social organization, however, there is no subsequent positive dynamics for return to a large society. It was also noted that social assistance can positively influence on one sphere of life of the homeless, and negatively on another.
