Results: The article discusses procedures for social support and areas of intersectoral cooperation in the organization and provision of social support for immigrant families applying for international protection, with particular focus on a refugee status. Conclusions: Planning and organizing social support for immigrant families applying for international protection in the Polish Republic is a multivariate process.
