A Community That Serves Those Who Have Served Us
The 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.
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. The emotional and financial adjustments these families are forced to make are often life altering. These issues are unrelenting. The Renewal Coalition offers a relaxing week where they can step away from the hospitals and small apartments to reconnect and concentrate on just being a family again.
When they arrive, each family settles into their own private ocean or waterfront residences. These residences have been generously donated by Sandy and Sara Lankler with great respect and honor for our military and the individuals who safeguard our freedom everyday. The families are then welcomed with baskets full of items to make their stay just a little more comfortable. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are donated by local residents and organizations. During their stay, the families can choose from a long list of activities that include: deep sea fishing, spa treatments, water slide excursions, jet skiing, sporting events, golf, trips to local attractions or just private time at the beach or movies!

Who We Are
The Renewal Coalition is a non-profit whose sole 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 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.
Since 2009 We Have Hosted Over 700 People
