How Mothers’ Nonsocial Ties Were Affected by Location

Unanticipated Gains

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines which childcare centers were likely to exhibit those organizational ties that provided resources useful to mothers. The chapter pays special attention to neighborhood context, examining whether childcare centers tended to be more or less connected when located in poor neighborhoods. It finds that many actors played a role in the prevalence of organizational ties, including parents, powerful external non‐profit organizations, and the state. In addition, using survey data on nearly 300 childcare centers in New York City, it finds that childcare centers tended to have more, not fewer connections if they were located in high poverty areas.

Keywords:   organizational ties, the state, large non‐profit organizations, referral ties, collaborative ties, neighborhood effects
