This study aims to study the social assistance policies directed at the street population in the city of Franca/SP, with an emphasis on the analysis of two services offered by the social assistance network of the municipality, the Specialized Reference Center for Population in Street Situation (Pop Center) and the Provisional Shelter "St. Giuseppe Moscati" - House of the Acolhida Prediletos. In order to do so, the historical perspective and the genesis of the phenomenon of street population combined with the development of capitalist means of production and the intensification of social inequalities in Brazil are discussed at first. Next, we seek to analyze the articulation of socio-welfare services, as well as social legislation and policies at the national and municipal levels directed at the population living in the street in the city of Franca/SP.
