Ayon kay DSWD Protective Services Bureau officer-in-charge Alicia S. Bonoan, “Hindi iligal ang maging taong lansangan. At walang taong gustong humantong sa kalagayang tulad nila.” Inirokemenda ni Bonoan na sa pagtulong ay isaisip ang daglat na ASK. Ang A ay para sa salitang Alamin. Alamin ang dahilan kung bakit sila napunta sa abang kalagayan at anong mga interbensiyon ang kanilang kailangan. Ang letrang S naman ay, isaisip ang kanilang Seguridad o kaligtasan. Dahil ang paglilimos sa kalsada ay pang-iimbita sa marami pang iba upang itaya ang kanilang buhay sa kakarampot na ibinibigay. Samantalang ang letrang K ay para sa salitang Karapatan. Maraming karapatan ang nawala sa kanila nang sila ay tumira sa lansangan. Alisin sa isipan ang diskriminasyon at magkaisang tumulong para maibalik ang mga nawalang karapatan ng mga taong nasa lansangan. Binigyan diin ito ni DSWD OIC Emmanuel Leyco at kaniyang sinabi,”Para lubusang matugunan ang problema, kailangan nating kilalanin itong mga walang tahanan at alamin ang dahilan kung bakit ͥ̈́)ͅ!݅ѥͥф)ͅɅ̈́)䁉ѥͥɭյхͥ儻t)ѥՔѼ
