Special needs of children in street situation

Children in street situation are often used to a lot of freedom - while they are also exposed to many dangers, including exploitation. Once they get engaged with services, professionals often struggle to provide structure to these children who may refuse to accept any structure imposed on them. How do you deal with this problem? Do you have methodologies, approaches, tips for professionals? Please share.
