"The homeless as social deprivation phenomenon" (by Larissa Alexeeva) looks at homelessness phenomenon and the position of persons thus affected in the country. Reasons for its spread are shown such as dislodging for failure to pay rent, actions of relatives or neighbors leading to same effect, voluntary/involuntary withdrawal from lodgings for family reasons, alcoholism etc. Social and demographic characterictics of the homeless are analyzed as well as 'anatomy' of the process of becoming homeless, adaptation to the position. Survey data gathered in Moscow permit the author to conclude that homelessness - as a social sickness - assumes chronic character. Numbers of the group and duration of them being homeless are a fact. Chances for social rehabilitation, help and assistance for this group are suggested such as respective legislation, refined practices of law-enforcement bodies, wider facilities for social services aimed at the group etc.
