Why Mothers’ Most Useful Ties Were Not Always Social

(p.129) 6 Ties to Other Organizations
Unanticipated Gains

Mario Luis Small

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines not social but organizational ties: connections that, through their centers, mothers made to other organizations that possessed valuable resources. It finds that centers were connected, in varying degrees, to organizations such as hospitals, youth organizations, museums, and federal agencies. These connections differed in type and orientation, and provided mothers access to many resources that can be categorized into information, services, and material goods. These connections were brokered by the centers through four mechanisms: referrals, collaboration, validation, and storage.

Keywords:   brokers, organizational ties, information, services, material goods, referrals, collaboration, validation, storage
