Helping Hands' hard work has consistently resulted in monkey helpers enriching, and in many cases totally transforming, the quality of life of their recipients. Fostering a special relationship between the helper and recipient, where each benefits from, and to some extent is dependent upon, the other, is at the very heart of Foundation Robmar's philosophy of supporting projects which have the human-animal bond at their core. Robmar is privileged to be associated with Helping Hands in its endeavors to assist those living with disabilities.

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers relies on private donations for its operating income. We do not receive any government money or insurance reimbursements for our service animals. Employing a sound mix of development efforts which include special events, foundation grants, corporate partnerships, and individual giving, we currently operate with a $1.3 million budget that supports 10 full-time and 1 part-time staff members who oversee a wide range of programs including training, placement, veterinary care, foster homes, and aftercare programs.
We are grateful to all the generous individuals, foundations, and businesses that support Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers. Their partnership with us deeply enriches and enhances the lives of people living with physical disabilities. We take the donations entrusted to us very seriously.
