Renewal Coalition – Assisting Wounded Warriors & Their Families

Renewal Coalition is an independent charitable organization and is not affiliated with any other local or national veteran organization.

Empowerment, Support & Healing

Renewal Coalition’s mission is to assist wounded service members and their families in their transition from military to civilian life or back to active duty by offering a retreat experience at Florida residences with the intent of providing military families a relaxed, pleasant, and welcoming environment.

Why We Are Different

We focus on the family sharing time together without the worries of expenses. Lodging, meals, entertainment, ground travel and even the small amenities are the responsibility of Renewal Coalition and NOT the service members and their families.

The Transition

When our Wounded Warriors return from Iraq and Afghanistan, they can spend months or even years at military hospitals and rehabilitation centers from all over the country. Although these hospital stays are life saving and transformational, it is a tedious experience as the healing process takes time. The families of these soldiers are often uprooted from their homes and communities and are relocated to cramped hotel rooms or apartments near the hospitals.

Why We Help

Renewal Coalition evolved from and is guided by our enthusiasm and sense of gratitude for this country. We are so blessed as Americans and consider it a privilege to offer assistance to those who have given so much in the name of duty. We invite you to learn more about organization.
The emotional and financial adjustments military families are forced to make are often life altering. Their issues are often unrelenting. Renewal Coalition offers a relaxing week where they can step away from the hospital setting and various living conditions to reconnect and concentrate on being a family again.

Commentary: Veterans deserve our support every day

Our recent annual observance of Veterans Day marked a genuine, heartfelt “thank you” to the men and women who have bravely served our nation. But now that the celebrations are over, it’s an appropriate time to ask an important question: Are we truly supporting America’s veterans? A landmark survey conducted by my organization, Disabled American Veterans, reveals a very mixed answer. There are 22 million veterans in this country. They are our family members, friends and neighbors; indeed, we all likely know at least one veteran. But there is much that many of us don’t know or understand about their experiences, attitudes and perceptions. That’s why we conducted the DAV Veterans Pulse Survey. Nationally representative of America’s veterans, it is the largest, most comprehensive assessment ever to reveal how generations of veterans from World War II through the post-9/11 era view their military experience, benefits and overall quality of life. The survey results reveal that whether they served in Vietnam or Afghanistan, Korea or Kuwait, veterans are glad that they answered the call. Seventy-nine percent would serve again. Eighty-four percent believe their military service had an overall positive impact on their life. This is true even though many veterans report paying a price for their military service. For example, nearly four out of 10 post-9/11 veterans say their military service had a negative effect on their physical health, and almost three out of 10 say that it had a negative impact on their mental health. Some of the research findings are troubling — one primary conclusion is that this country is not keeping its promises to America’s veterans. Large numbers of veterans... read more

St. Andrew’s student Jack Krasulak wins award for service to Renewal Coalition

The Renewal Coalition assists wounded service members and their families in their transition from military to civilian life or back to active duty by offering a retreat experience at Florida residences with the intent of providing military families a relaxed, pleasant, and welcoming environment. Volunteers are extremely important in this endeavor in helping men, women and children (including children his age – some of whom have lost their parents during combat) in this effort which is why Jack Krasulak, a 7th grade student at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Academy, has been awarded the Prudential Spirit of Community Award for his volunteer service with the Renewal Coalition. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program applauds young people who already are making a positive difference in their towns and neighborhoods, and to inspire others to think about how they might contribute to their communities. Over the past 20 years, more than 115,000 young people have been officially recognized for their volunteer efforts. Jack will be presented with his award by Prudential representatives at the school assembly in January 2016. This young man’s inspiration to volunteer comes from his desire to give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country; also, Jack’s great-grandfather was killed in World War II and thus, he has a sincere desire to support veterans. One wonderful and amazing activity in Jack Krasulak’s volunteer efforts (which is one of his favorite experiences) is in teaching veterans to fish, which he does one weekend every month. Recently, he enlisted the help of local fishing charters to donate their services to soldiers. Today, there is... read more

Just wanted to send a note of thanks for the wonderful vacation we received to Florida in April. Every part of the trip was truly amazing and a little overwhelming. It is amazing how many volunteers you have and nice, caring, and helpful everyone is! We will never forget the great time we had or the people that we meet. – Jess, Brandon & Alexander
Thanks again for everything you did for us. We had a WONDERFUL time!!! We are so grateful to have met such wonderful people as you. Thanks! – Brandon, Gwyneth, Matthew and Samantha
My experience was more personal than a vacation. The staff was extraordinary, hospitable and caring. They saw to my every need and at the same time gave me space to recuperate. I would like to thank Mrs. Mary Hinton for making this trip possible. Since attending the vacation, I feel that I have changed in a positive way. Even my family has commented on this. – Sgt. Tracey E. Mosley
I want you to know much I enjoyed the trip to Florida with Mary Hinton, nothing can replace what they did for me. Since I been home that was the first time I really could relax. Each day was special and really there is no limit to what they will do for you. If you have any soldiers with tough problem please give them a chance to visit Mary program. I really have hope and it gave me the drive to want to lead my soldiers again. – Sergeant First Class Veal
I consider them to be solider as well. As where we (the military) volunteer to defend this country for the sake of freedom. These people volunteer to amend the soldiers that defend the country. I consider it a sacrifice of the same multitude. A part of the soldier’s creed-says “Never Leave a Fallen Comrade” And that’s what this organization had done; Picked us up!! I would like for you to thanks EVERYONE for their kindness that was shown to us. – Robert
We couldn’t have asked for anything better than the experience that Renewal Coalition offered us as retreat members. The people, the places, the activities, the food- everything was absolutely amazing. We felt completely comfortable and at home in the welcoming environment that they provided us.  It gave us the opportunity to enjoy each other and our surroundings in a place free from the stress of our daily lives. – Steven & Katie
We’ve been home a few days now but I’m still wishing we were still in Jupiter. Thank you very, very much for giving us such a gift. We had an amazing time. We experienced new things, made new friends, and have new memories. I know my husband was smiling down on us. He would have enjoyed all the activities too. Please don’t change a thing. Everything was perfect. Your big hearts and hard work will be remembered forever. – Tiffanie
It was a blast! They made us feel so comfortable and at home. They even gave us the chance to reunite with my dad and family whom we haven’t seen in years! It was such a blessing! Mary, Sara and the crew took care of us very well, we didn’t have to lift a finger. Definitely relaxing and fun! Be sure to send any other Marines out there, it’s a life changing experience. – Brian
