SCUBA Therapy Builds Confidence and Hope

Diveheart.org: Making a Difference

This story is guaranteed to make you smile--and it just may make you cry as well. Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News just reported how one dive organization is "Making a Difference" in the lives of kids with physical challenges. If you ever wanted a reason to be proud of your fellow divers, this is it. Click to play:

 

 

Diveheart.org was founded more than 10 years ago with a bold mission: "To build confidence and independence in children, adults, and veterans with disabilities using SCUBA diving as a tool."

 

The Diveheart Foundation is a non-profit tax exempt organization created to provide and support educational SCUBA diving and snorkeling experience 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.

 

Diveheart says, "It is the 'CAN DO' spirit that Diveheart hopes 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."

 

For many with physical challenges, water is the "great equalizer," and so the programs of Diveheart can "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."
