Monkey Business – March 2023

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers Becomes Envisioning Access
March 31, 2023

On Saturday, March 25 at our event, From Monkeys to Robots, we celebrated our legacy, our beloved capuchin monkeys, and our future the development of our Innovative Technology Initiative. As you are aware, we are at the natural end of the monkey helper’s era and announced that we are rebranding and renaming the organization to better reflect our work; providing access as was envisioned forty-four years ago when we began. Therefore, beginning with this newsletter you will begin to see us transform from Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers to our new name ENVISIONING ACCESS, INC. Throughout the spring and into the summer our website will change, as well as social media, newsletters, printed material and any correspondence you receive from us.

As I have been saying in this newsletter for many months now, our new vision is to provide innovative solutions through technology to give adults the opportunity to use specific types of robotics, as well as virtual and augmented realities in a way that allows for independence to go back to school, to find meaningful employment, access avenues for socialization, connect to medical care or provide respite for a primary caregiver if needed.
