Jupiter — Founded two years ago by Jupiter philanthropists Sandy and Sara Lankler, the non-profit Renewal Coalition has offered hope and healing to more than 100 wounded American military personnel and their families.

Through retreat experiences organized by a staff of about 35 volunteers, the organization offers support and assistance to injured servicemen who have endured lengthy stays at hospitals and rehabilitation facilities. Their families and caretakers often join them.

“Our mission is to help combat wounded military personnel and their families transition either back to active duty or civilian life,” executive director Mary Hinton said. “These families come to us after suffering unrelenting issues in their lives. Just the ability to be reunited with their families in a relaxed setting is so beneficial and so therapeutic for them.”
