SWIM, Inc. (Specialized Water Interest Movement) is a non-profit organization began in 1975 to assist adults suffering from muscular impairments to obtain water based therapy. Originally located in an indoor swimming pool attached to the home of founder Doris Hollingsworth in Bedminster, SWIM, Inc. now operates ten programs in nine community and YMCA pools in New Jersey, stretching from Sussex to Cape May.

Each program, or chapter, run by a dedicated group of volunteers, encourages adults with Multiple Sclerosis, Post Polio Syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, and other mobility impairments to enjoy FREE aquatic exercise in a safe and caring environment. With the support and generosity of a local philanthropist, the Board is now launching an expansive program to make SWIM, Inc. more available for those who will benefit by employing its first Executive Director. After thirty-six years of a being a total volunteer organization, Eileen Loughnane will continue the journey started by Doris Hollingsworth and enthusiastically promoted by swimmers, volunteers and friends.
