We R Foco is a new initiative launched in August 2018 made up of businesses and organizations across all industries with one common goal: To support a culture of local economic vitality and community involvement. Together, more than 60 community-minded businesses have united to advocate for local practices.

The We R Foco website functions as a one-stop-shop for anything local and includes a complete business directory of each company involved, a list of events that these companies are involved in, a local job board that highlights positions for people interested in working locally and details on the importance. In addition, the We R Foco website features stories of its members, highlighting the many unique contributions they have made to the Fort Collins community. Snippets of three of these stories are below, with the full stories featured on www.werfoco.com/fort-collins-news-2.
