Building confidence and independence in children and adults with disabilities is the primary mission of the Diveheart Foundation
Through SCUBA diving, snorkeling and related activities the Diveheart Foundation supports and facilitates programs that teach children and adults with disabilities to fly.
Thanks to the “wonder of the water column”, the oceans and lakes of the world become the forgiving weightless Environment of outer space, giving perfect buoyancy and balance to a child or adult who might otherwise struggle on land.
It is the “CAN DO” spirit that the Diveheart Foundation hopes to instill in all its participants. Giving them the confidence and independence that allows them to face their own life challenges and overcome barriers that before might have seemed insurmountable.
The Diveheart Foundation was founded in Early 2001 and is a non-profit tax-exempt (501-C3) national organization chartered in the state of Illinois. Diveheart provides and supports educational SCUBA diving, snorkeling and other related experience programs that are open to any child or adult with disabilities, in the hope of providing both physical and psychological therapeutic value.
Diveheart is a volunteer organization, which depends on freewill contributions and fundraising activities to continue its work. We welcome your tax-deductible contributions.
