This chapter looks at certain community programs that were designed to form a specific idea of community as a part of the state. These programs are a part of Community Mothers, which has a significant impact on the lives of rural households and families in Buenos Aires. This chapter examines the conceptualizations of community that can be associated with Community Mothers. It devotes one section to the role of violence in a number of social relations, such as government decisions and economic production, and the blurring of the boundaries between Black and Indigenous communities.

Keywords:   community programs, Community Mothers, conceptualizations of community, violence, social relations, blurred boundaries, Black communities, Indigenous communities
