FOC is a 501[c]3 Non-Profit organization founded in 1999 by community leaders who foresaw the economic and demographic changes that faced Elk City, the surrounding region, and rural west.

The web-site states: Public meetings helped to build the community’s vision for FOC. In the year 2000, community members determined that they wanted to retain their ties to the natural resources that surrounded them by developing small to midsized businesses, improving community infrastructure, offering educational opportunities and connecting entrepreneurs to funding opportunities. This set the direction for Framing Our Community and the formation of its Jobs in the Woods and Small Business Incubator programs.
