Background and Aim: The presence of children and adolescents at risk in any society is unavoidable and is considered one of the major challenges in the legal systems of countries, because the lack of support and release of them can cause irreparable damage to society. Different countries have measures to protect the rights of children and adolescents at risk of harm, among these measures in Iran are the activities of the Welfare Organization in order to empower this category of children. In this article, an attempt has been made to examine the position of the Welfare Organization regarding the protection of homeless and abused children and adolescents and street children in the light of laws and regulations.
Method: The present research has been done using the descriptive and documentary (library) method.
Results: The Welfare Organization provides legal protection to children and adolescents who are without guardians and abused through the exercise of their powers in relation to overnight care centers and substitute families and participating in the prevention of victimization. It also plays a role in the case of street children through recruiting and reforming children and social emergency support.
Conclusion: Organizational stability, continuous follow-up and adoption of strategies to facilitate the performance of legally assigned tasks by the Welfare Organization have a significant effect on the promotion of protective measures for children and adolescents exposed to harm such as orphaned and abused children and street children.
