Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers is a non-profit organization that makes it its mission to improve the quality of life of members of the disabled community. The organization went through a change in 2020 when it moved away from the “Helper Monkeys” model to assist disabled people through technology.
Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers doesn’t just abandon its monkey helpers; they are committed to taking care of its post-service monkeys until the end of their natural lives. The monkeys will remain in natural care in the organization’s monkey living center where they have everything they need to live a brilliant life.
