Scope and fast pace of implementation of some economic reforms caused appearance of many problems in Poland. Situation of this type was the reason for widening of poverty, worsening of people’s state of health and appearing of pathological behaviors. Weak resistance against difficult situations in life is, in turn, the cause for falling into the state of helplessness. People afflicted by homelessness become unable to manage by themselves, they lose their way in the surrouding reality. Thus, the issue of homelessness is of the extreme character (is the most tragic in its effects), and in consequence – of the pathological character. Education is extremely important in solving process of this social problem. It is possible to perceive two spaces where it is essential. The first one concerns the society education, that regards the individual who does not take active part in social life for the homeless one. The aim of education is to show problems of “the other one” and his/her social integration. The second educational space includes the prophylaxis and creates the possibility of social and professional reintegration of homeless people. The problem of education importance in the social and professional reintegration of homeless has been discussed in this article.
