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.

6th Annual Chef’s Helping Heroes Fundraiser

                Renewal Coalition is an organization which provides fully paid retreats for combat injured or ill service members and their families. Many of our wounded service members and their families must spend weeks or months in military hospitals, VA hospitals or rehabilitation centers all over the country. These extended medical stays take a huge toll on the families. Renewal Coalition brings veterans and their families to Jupiter, Florida for a fully paid retreat in order to help them reconnect as a couple or family before returning to rehabilitation, active duty or civilian life. Renewal Coalition was founded by Sandy and Sara Lankler as a labor of love.  Mr. Lankler passed away in 2013 but Sara continues to be the driving force behind the organization.   For the sixth year, local well-known chefs are partnering with theRenewal Coalition to help raise much needed funding by offering their talent, service and even the food to present Chefs Helping Heroes, an evening of excellent dining, drinks, music, dancing and an exciting live auction. And you couldn’t ask for a better location!  The setting of the Coalition is along the Loxahatchee River in a beautiful compound reminiscent of Old Florida, tucked among the banyans. Executive Director Mary Hinton states, “It is an amazing event where the community comes together to support us. We are grateful for the chefs, our donors and our sponsors in making this a memorable evening.” The Chefs Participating are: Chef Frank Eucalitto, Cafe Chardonnay Wine Guy Brian Chamis, Vine Post Chef Pascal Georget, Reef Grill Chef John Carlino, Chef Corp Chef Erik Peterson, EVO Chef Justin Knight, Dive... read more

Veterans Day

Today our country honors all of the veterans who have put their lives on the line and all of those who continue to fight daily for our great country. We are forever indebted to our veterans which is why we try to make every day “Veterans Day” here at Renewal Coalition. These brave men and women put their lives on the line and have to leave their families behind to defend the American people. These selfless men and women exemplify the meaning of a true hero. Their battle does not end on the battlefield as many of them must come home and face the battles of mental and physical illnesses that hinder them from the normal lives that many people take for granted. Today we want to honor all of our veterans and say THANK YOU for all you have done for us, our families, and our country. May your sacrifice never go unnoticed. “The land of the free, because of the brave”- May God bless you and keep you... read more

September 2016 VA Luncheon

On September 21, 2016, Renewal Coalition in partnership with Veterans Adaptive Sports held our 5th VA luncheon since 2014. We hosted approximately 55 disabled veterans from the Community Living Center (CTC), Blind Rehab Center (BRC) and Outpatient Mental Health Programs (PRRC & MHICM) of the Palm Beach VA Medical Center. This is an event that we look forward to hosting several times each year, when the veterans assemble at the Renewal Coalition property for lunch, games and relaxation. We would like to extend a special thank you to Peter Moore from the Navy Seals Museum who gave special hats complete with the Seals Trident logo to each veteran. Everyone had a wonderful time by the river and we look forward to the next VA lunch retreat, which will be held on December 7,... 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
