SOUZA, Fernanda Hermínia Oliveira  and  BRITO, Leila Maria Torraca de. Shelter for children and adolescents in Aracaju - Brazil. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2015, vol.27, n.1, pp. 41-58. ISSN 0103-5665.

This paper aims to present and discuss researches conducted on the implementation of shelters for children and adolescent in Aracaju, capital of Sergipe (Brazil). It was observed on the analyzed surveys that Aracaju's shelters still do not carry out all of the guidelines proposed by the Statute of Children and Adolescents for this type of protective measure, which results in the violation of certain rights of children and adolescents. The analysis of these studies indicates problems in the implementation of shelters, such as: dismembering of siblings' group, shelters with age restrictions, communication problems of the network who protects childhood and adolescence, a significant number of children and adolescents born in the country side but sheltered in the capital, absence of work with children and adolescence's family, difficulties in ensuring the right to live among family members and community. We concluded that it is necessary to offer other ways of protecting children and adolescents in order to value the family and avoid the adoption of protective measure of sheltering.
