TRUST is an organization dedicated to justice and promoting equality and respect in Calvert County. The mission of TRUST includes finding workable solutions to systemic problems facing members of the community in the areas of education, housing and transportation, and empowering individuals to be part of those solutions, the primary focus is on relationships and breaking down the barriers that have traditionally divided residents of our county: race, place and economic standing.
