The Diveheart Experience
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, we’re all 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.
Diveheart is bringing their Scuba Experiences to the Washington, DC area with monthly events at the Wakefield High School Aquatic Center in Arlington, Virginia. There participants, with the help of their highly trained Diveheart adaptive dive team, can immediately begin reaping the benefits of zero gravity and scuba therapy. These benefits include self-confidence, independence and improved self-esteem that will last a lifetime.
