Abstract: Straipsnyje aptariamas benamystės ir socialinio darbo teorinis aspektas, pateikiami empiriniai duomenys apie benamių vyrų vaikystės prisiminimus, patekimą į nakvynės namus, dabartinį jų gyvenimą bei palaikomus socialinius ryšius. Socialiniai ryšiai suprantami kaip apimantys žmogaus emocinę, psichologinę, dvasinę savijautą, kitų žmonių mums teikiamą paramą, o šių ryšių turėjimas / naujų užmezgimas gali padėti žmonėms, atsidūrusiems sudėtingose gyvenimo situacijose, greičiau įveikti benamystę
Homelessness is a voluntary or involuntary way of life, that does not meet the behavior standards and values in the society and for which the society „punishes“ by stigmatizing and discriminating people.

The research revealed that the night shelter residents find it difficult to discover the meaning of life and to start long-term relationships built on trust and mutual respect with the similar fate people. However, despite this, it was noticed that men have no discomfort in communicating with social workers or organizations that provide social services and help.[...]
