Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers is a non-profit organization that, for more than 40 years, has helped adults with mobility issues by providing them with a capuchin service monkey to help with their daily tasks. We raised and trained them, carefully matched them with recipients, and provided support for the lifetime of each placement. In 2021 we made the difficult decision to cease our training/placement services. We will use our vast knowledge to transition to an organization providing global insight into the human-animal bond. Our commitment to every animal in our program is of critical importance and we will continue to support our current recipients, special care homes, and older monkeys.
