Trust in delivering services is a topic that has been studied but is not given the attention it deserves when considering community health workers and their unique opportunity to positively impact communities. Trust is an essential foundation needed for any positive relationship. Community Health Workers' ability to establish trusting relationships must be pursued and it importance not overlooked. Through analysis of literature, observation, and delivering care to communities, the need for establishing trusting relationships first arose as a topic of focus. In order to provide effective care services to communities, and after review of available resources, research recommends community health workers should first complete a curriculum to build trust and community engagement.
