OUR FEDERATIONS

PICO NATIONAL NETWORK

PICO was founded in 1972 under the leadership of Jesuit priest Father John Baumann.  PICO began as a regional training institute to help support neighborhood organizations in California and ultimately developed a new congregation-community model. In this model, congregations of all denominations and faiths serve as the institutional base for community organizations. Rather than bring people together simply based on common issues like housing or education, the faith-based or broad-based organizing model makes values and relationships the glue that holds organizations together.

In 2004, PICO changed its name from the Pacific Institute for Community Organizations to PICO National Network to reflect its growth into a national organizing effort. Today PICO has 44 affiliated federations and 8 statewide networks working in 150 cities and towns and 17 states. More than one million families and one thousand congregations from 40 different denominations and faiths participate in PICO.  Father Baumann continues his work with PICO as the Director of PICO International, which does work in Rwanda, Haiti, and Central America.
