Providing orphans with housing in the Russian Federation is one of the tasks of social protection of population. The state has taken measures aimed at fulfilling its obligations in this regard. Despite quite complete regulatory frameworks, in some cases the established requirements for the provision of housing for orphans are not complied with. This study analyses the committed violations of the law, identifies the causes of the problems that arise, and examines the current legislation for ineffective enforcement of certain provisions, namely, the following negative factors are noted as the increasing number of orphans each year; lack of a complete registry of orphans in need of housing in the regions; shortage of funds for the purchase of housing in the regions, etc. Recent changes in legislation in this area have solved a number of problematic issues, but this has not helped to eliminate all the negative causes. As a result of the research, the authors conclude that housing for orphans can be provided as a partial measure of social support from the state. Such support should be solidarity-based, involving both the state and the person concerned. The housing that orphans receive into ownership without any security conditions quickly becomes an object of purchase and sale, thereby failing to achieve the main goal of social protection. Orphans should have an interest in acquiring housing through personal involvement by starting a family, having children, investing their own capital, obtaining preferential mortgages, etc.
