Abstract

The existence of the homeless is a phenomenon and often raises various perceptions in society. This situation seems to cause a gulf of interaction between civil society and those who are said to be very difficult to approach. Following the situation, NGOs that have been given authority by the government represent the community, especially trying to make some interaction approaches to this group. The move was seen to have received positive responses from homelessness in social interactions with the general public and NGOs in particular. This situation is said to have taken place in recent years. Thus, this study aims to examine the relationship between NGO social interaction concepts with the pattern of homelessness and the method of applying value to the homeless during the interaction process. The design of this study was qualitative using interview instruments and questionnaires to NGO volunteers. A semi-structured interview was conducted on five purposed respondents. While questionnaires were distributed to NGO volunteers who were periodically involved with the activities of the homeless by using simple sampling. The findings of the study found that the concept of social interaction used was significant with moral values and the relationship between NGOs with the homeless was at a good level. This study implies the local authorities and other NGO groups in carrying out their activities with homeless people. Social interaction is a very important thing to create a harmonious community of life whether it involves, race, race or race in society or with certain groups including homeless people.
