For a long time there have been attempts to develop and implement social programs in support of various vulnerable groups, government agencies and foundations investing substantial sums to meet social goals, but they have failed in terms of efficiency and sustainability. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the need for social entrepreneurship in social services delivery, based on the argument that national and international empirical research are found deficient in terms of social entrepreneurship, which is why new models of social entrepreneurship are becoming necessary on the background of inefficiency and ineffectiveness of social institutions in an effort to solve social problems with witch communities are faced. Research Methodology: The paper is based on an exploratory research to identify the coordinates of social entrepreneurship, by defining the concepts underlying this phenomenon and though further research and analysis and on data collection, using statistical methods of analysis in the area of social services, in order to identify the services, situations, beneficiaries and the types of employment opportunities, where the social entrepreneurship can intervene.
