Financial incapacity constitutes a social issue. This inability is a factor influencing the number of street children. The Pekanbaru City Social Service plays a crucial role in providing street children with guidance. The social service is anticipated to reduce the number of children living on the streets. This study aimed to determine the social service's role in fostering street children, as well as the factors that contribute to the occurrence of street children and those that inhibit the social service's role in implementing street child coaching in the city of Pekanbaru. Observation, interviews, and documentation were utilised to collect data for the descriptive-qualitative research approach. The results of the study indicate that the social services provide guidance by collecting data to determine the origins of street children and protect them. In addition to establishing shelters to provide guidance to rehabilitated street children, the social service also establishes shelters. Due to low family income and environmental influences, street children are compelled to live on the streets. People who frequently give money to street children at red lights and the children's and parents' lack of motivation to change for the better continue to be obstacles.
