What is PICAN?
Established in 2015, People Improving Communities and Neighborhoods (PICAN) is an affiliate of People Incorporated. PICAN is a community housing development organization with the goal of helping extend the Agency’s work in the area of housing.
One of the founding principles behind this organization is the belief that affordable homeownership is part of the American Dream and should be accessible to all members of the community. PICAN works to acquire, rehabilitate, and/or construct rental and home-buyer properties in Fall River and Taunton and makes them available to low and moderate-income individuals through an application process.
