This case study examines a local women’s NGO called the “Elderly, Women’s, and Children’s Shelter” in Nanjing. Using dynamic process analysis, the article observes, in a state-dominated system, the origins, action strategies, and challenges of system-induced NGOs (SINGOs). Research shows that SINGOs are organized to meet the needs of local governments; their appearance, furthermore, is directly related to “local state” paternalism. In the practice of mobilizing resources, SINGOs garner most of their resources through strategies like participating in officially organized study tours, fighting for “typical model” status, and integrating and taking advantage of residential community system resources. However, because they inherit “system-induced” qualities and political weaknesses, they are also left with structural flaws and pains.
