Their family background shows that most of street children in Surabaya still live with their family. The social impact is obvious from their reluctance to go back to school. One of the factors that motivate them to go to the street is because of their family’s poor economy. The street children are also sensitive to exploitation physically as well as economically. Besides, they, in fact, haven’t received the access to social facilities and even protection.
