  • 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. The purpose of Diveheart is to provide and support educational SCUBA diving and snorkeling experience programs that are open to any child or adult with disabilities in the hope of providing both physical and psychological therapeutic value to that person.

    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.

    Through SCUBA diving 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 to a child or adult who would otherwise struggle on land.
