This organization blows my mind. They have allowed my sister and many other people get the water and feel free again or for the first time! The passion in the volunteers is seen at every event.
Jim Elliott and Diveheart do amazing work. I have worked with Jim behind the scenes on a volunteer basis, and I have known Jim personally for over 35 years. Diveheart makes a powerful, positive difference in so many lives. Please support them in their mission.
I have worked with Jim Elliott and this organization for two years. I am very impressed with the very focused efforts to improve the lives of our disabled veterans and other participants with disabilities. Their organization make lives matter and bridge the gap to allow the disabled to experience a truly meaningful adventure in life. I myself am an open water diver and I intend to not only support the Diveheart Foundation financially, but I will also donate my time to help support events. I would like to become a certified instructor for Diveheart in the future. More people need to get on board to help this foundation get noticed.
I have personally had the pleasure of being a volunteer for Diveheart. The experience is incredible and life changing.
This organization is ran by a fantastic group of people that continues to set the standard for adaptive diving.
I highly encourage anyone to be apart of Diveheart in any way possible!
Being involved with the Diveheart Foundation is an amazing adventure.
To experience the generous attitudes of the volunteers and to witness the transformation from trepidation to pure joy of the brand new divers is quite a gift.
Jim Elliott has created an environment of learning and inclusion. A world where all are welcome and all are cherished, and all are underwater defying gravity.
The Diveheart foundation is truly one of the best organizations on the planet. They are well run and run by people of integrity providing an invaluable service to so many.

This is the most amazing organization - who would ever think of teaching handicapped individuals to scuba dive? And yet they do, with patience and care and safety and kindness and good humor and love. What an amazing opportunity for the participants! The pride on their faces is unmistakable. Way to go, Diveheart!!
Diveheart is just a wonderful organization staffed by wonderful caring people. I first noticed an article in the paper, and decided to check out the organization. I was blown away first by the founder and president Jim. I spoke with him for awhile on the phone and decided to pursue it further. I am so glad I did. What I have come to find is a caring, well run, amazing resource for almost any challenged person. From the first event I attended as deck help, until the most current event where I am now an adaptive dive buddy, I continue to be blown away by the organization. The people we serve love the events. One must just come out to an event and witness it for oneself to truly appreciate what Diveheart is and can do.

Diveheart is the greatest organization I have been associated with over the years. Jim and his staff have opened the doors to people that may have been in the past closed. From instructor to participant the opportunity for new adventures is around the corner. I have been involved for the past five years and has changed my life. The word NO is not in the vocabulary for diveheart. The answer is what I can I do next to improve in skills and enjoy diving. There are always tears of joy and many smiles on every trip. There are no limitations to set a new goal or to dream a new dream. Lt. Michael P. Burroughs Retired , Advanced Adaptive Dive Buddy
