The homeless people suffers from social stigmatization, moreover, it suffers from the neglect of society and the State. The legal order established by the Federal Constitution of 1988 presents a list of Social Rights which must represent positive benefits of the State. However, it is observed that such rights are lacking in practical effectiveness, affecting the whole population, but with a greater impact on populations in conditions of social vulnerability, as is the case of the group in question. In this way, there is the search of the judiciary to ensure Social Rights, whether through collective or individual actions. At that point, another problem is verified, that is, the difficulty of access to justice in its various forms, including that embodied in access to the judiciary and in its later stages until the final provision of jurisdiction. The present work is necessary because it seeks to evaluate the content of judicial decisions emanated by the São Paulo judiciary in the demands in which are parties homeless people in the lawsuit by the Social Law of Housing, Health and Food. Such evaluation should take into account not only the decision-making mechanism, but also the merit of the requests formulated in such lawsuits, leading to the creation of indices of the demands by age group, sex and the cities in which they inhabit, as well as the evaluation of the consonance of the decisions with the constitutional objective of promoting the dignity of the human person and of the principles expressed mainly in Article 3 of the constitutional text.
