Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled

For 35 years, Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled, Inc. , a Boston based non-profit, has been making it possible for adults with spinal cord injuries and other mobility impairments throughout the US to live more independent and engaged lives. Helping Hands matches these individuals, free of charge, with a highly trained service monkey to help with their daily tasks and provide them with greater independence, companionship, and hope. Find more information here.

Ned and monkey helper Kasey, seen above, are featured in “Kasey to the Rescue – the Remarkable Story of a Monkey and a Miracle,” written by Ellen Rogers. Kasey has brought joy and hope to Ned every day and has turned the simple tasks of life into a life worth living. Find more information here.

Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers is holding their annual Food Festivale at WGBH tonight at 6pm.
