This article aims to analyze the completion of an internship in Psychology and Community Processes in a male shelter for homeless people in the city of Rio de Janeiro, in 2015. Therefore, making use of cartography as a methodological strategy From the stage and production of this text, as well as from Foucault's contributions, among others, we briefly walk through the experience of the intervention in its connections with the then political context of the city. It had just hosted the 2014 Football World Cup final and was preparing for the start of the 2016 Olympics. Hygienist policies of urban cleansing of the undesirable, criminalization of the poor and repression of social movements were taking place in parallel with mega sports events. In this adverse context, the internship was built as a space for welcoming, caring, attentive listening and problematization guided by the different experiences of its participants.
