PAIVA, Ilana Lemos de et al. The reinstitutionalization of children and adolescents in the west of Natal-RN. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.1, pp.66-76. ISSN 1677-2970.

The purpose of this article is to analyze the incidence of cases of new institutionalization of children and adolescents and to discuss how the policy of attending to this population is organized to strengthen the family's protective function. For this, a documentary research was carried out in official databases. These data were later categorized and analyzed. In the documentary analyzes were found 81 Guidance Reception that pointed to the new institutionalization. Of these, 34.6% referred to foster families whose families came from the Western Administrative Region. The data indicate that the new institutionalization of children and adolescents may have a strong relationship with the situation of poverty and absence of the State in proposing effective public policies.

Keywords : Children´s shelter; Reinstitutionalization; Children and adolescents.
