About Us

Our service monkeys are provided at no cost to our recipients.

How does Helping Hands get the monkeys?

The monkeys for the Helping Hands program have been bred in a closed colony that was first in Florida and then most recently, in Massachusetts. This has allowed Helping Hands to know the full health and behavioral history of every monkey in our program as we follow them through Socialization Homes then Training and finally Placement. At present, Helping Hands does not maintain an active breeding colony as we have enough monkeys in the program to sustain placements for the foreseeable future.
