    In the master's thesis I will present the changes experienced by homeless people in the area of Nova Gorica that occur from first to third wave of the COVID-19 epidemic and the actions homeless people received to compensate the obstacles that emergency situation set. I used qualitative approach. For many of us, the epidemic represented a major turning point in our life, even if we did not experience it all the same way. Some of us simply stayed at home when the movement restriction was introduced, while others did not have that option. The cessation of public life also meant the closure of public spaces and services and the reduction of the activities of organizations, which for many homeless people were the center of meeting basic human needs. With the help of interviews with users and employees in the field of homelessness. I collected data on their observations in the field of everyday life, access to health services and interpersonal relationships, and planning responses and barriers for employees. Purpose of my research is to present an integral picture of the state of homelessness in Nova Gorica between first and third wave of the epidemic, which will offer a basic insight into experiencing the situation, as well as systemic weaknesses that would need to be dealt in the future. Results that I present below I see as a small but important guidelines in planning further work in the field of homelessness in our country, as the content is derived exclusively from user’s and practical experiences.
