The online portion of Monkey Helpers' Annual Food Festivale is now open. The auction will run from September 24, 2012 to October 10, 2012, with the live event taking place on October 13, 2012. All proceeds go to support our Training and Placement Program.

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled is a national nonprofit serving quadriplegic and other people with severe spinal cord injuries or mobility-impairments by providing highly trained capuchin monkeys to assist with daily in-home activities.

We raise and train these monkeys to act as live-in companions who, over the course of 20-30 years, will provide the gifts of independence, companionship, dignity and hope to the people they help.

Through the generous support of donors and volunteers - just like you - our monkeys are placed at no cost to our recipients.

When you bid on our items, you change lives, renew hope, and bring a sense of independence and companionship to our recipients' lives.
