We believe in giving back by supporting local worthy causes such as Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg, and the Virginia Beach Extreme Home Makeover house.
Another cause that we’re passionate about is the mission of CareNet Pregnancy Resource Centers. CareNet is a wonderful organization that provides positive solutions for women who are dealing with planned or unplanned pregnancy.

In support of CareNet, last Thursday evening Brian and Teresa Chalsma were honored to attend the Annual Fundraising Banquet held at the Newport News Marriott at City Center. “I find it important that CareNet serves all women without bias or condemnation,” says Teresa Chalsma, Vice President of The Roofing and Remodeling Company. “They would like for the mother to choose life, but if she makes other choices they will also support her and provide her with counseling. They have staff on hand to walk women through many situations and make each client feel safe.”

At the banquet, Brian and Teresa met a young man named Tyler Duval. Before he was born, Tyler’s parents were told that he had Downs Syndrome and doctors recommended that his mother have an abortion. His father said he just couldn’t end the life of his son. Today, Tyler is fine and this year will graduate from CNU with a degree in Social Work, after which he plans to get his Master’s at Norfolk State. He hopes to continue his work with the homeless.
This is a cause that hits close to home for us. Staci Hicks, CFO of The Roofing and Remodeling Company, was adopted from a young mother. The positive choice that her biological mother made so many years ago changed her life and the lives of many others. “She has been my best friend for over 20 years,” says Teresa. “I can’t imagine a life that didn’t include her.”
The Roofing and Remodeling Company looks forward to continued support of this important cause. For more information about CareNet Pregnancy Resource Centers, click here.
