DIVEHEART MISSION STATEMENT:
To build confidence and independence in children, adults, and veterans with disabilities using SCUBA diving as a tool.
The Diveheart Foundation was founded in 2001 and is a non-profit tax exempt 501(C)(3) national organization chartered in the state of Illinois.
The purpose of Diveheart is to provide and support educational SCUBA diving, surface supplies gas (SSG), snorkeling and related experience programs which 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, while building confidence, independence and self esteem … enriching their quality of life and human spirit.
It is the "CAN DO" spirit that Diveheart strives to instill in all its participants by giving them the confidence and independence that allows them to face their own life challenges and overcome barriers that before might have seemed insurmountable.
Through SCUBA diving, Diveheart 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 to a child or adult who would otherwise struggle on land.
