Diveheart is a nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. The
purpose of Diveheart is to provide and support educational scuba
diving programs that are open to any child, adult or veteran with a
disability, with the hope of providing both physical and psychological therapeutic value to that person. We’ve discovered the forgiving weightless wonder of the water column provides the perfect gravity-free environment for those who might
otherwise struggle on land. Underwater, everyone is equal. Diveheart works with individuals who have a variety of disabilities, including physical and developmental disabilities, vision and hearing impairments, amputations, traumatic brain injuries, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and more. Diveheart seeks to help its participants “Imagine the Possibilities” in their lives.
