Divecare is a non-profit Florida corporation, that has recieved its tax exempt 501(c)(3) status. The organization was founded in 2007 and incorporated in 2010. Divecare's purpose is to offer and support educational SCUBA diving and snorkeling programs. These programs are available to any child, adult or veteran with a disability with the intention of providing both physical and psychological therapeutic value to each person.
Divecare is poised to help build the "Can Do" confidence and independence to participants. This can help them face their own life challenges and begin to overcome barriers that might once have seemed insurmountable.
Through SCUBA diving, Divecare teaches people with mental or physical disabilities to "fly" underwater. The oceans, lakes, rivers and pools of the world become a forgiving, weightless environment, giving perfect buoyancy to those who would otherwise struggle on land.
