Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers was founded in 1979 to raise and train capuchin monkeys to provide daily in-home assistance to people living with spinal cord injuries or other mobility impairments. We are the only organization in the world that has trained capuchin monkeys to be service animals. Helping Hands learned that these little animals delivered more than just a willing set of nimble hands to their recipients. The monkeys provided companionship, joy, and the renewed sense of purpose that comes from taking responsibility for the health and well-being of another creature. Our mission is to provide: outstanding, ongoing support for our current recipients and their monkey helpers; a safe, healthy, fulfilling environment for post-service monkeys for the rest of their lives
