Our Programs

We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

Socialization Homes

Socialization Home

Helping Hands monkeys need to mature before they attend Monkey College. For the early years of their lives, they are raised in loving homes where they learn to socialize with humans in a home environment. Families who raise and socialize Helping Hands monkeys are volunteers who commit themselves to the demanding but rewarding job of preparing these young monkeys for training and service.

(We are not currently seeking volunteers for this role.)

Helping Hands combines my love of animals with my desire to be a part of an organization whose mission is worthy and whose work fulfills the mandate to make the world a better place. Through the programs and services offered by Helping Hands, individuals who face extraordinary challenges will see the world as a better place
