Resources for Helping Children in Foster Care Build Resilience

Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street, has welcomed Karli, a Muppet in foster care, as well as her “for-now” parents, Dalia and Clem. All three Muppets appear in videos posted online as part of an initiative to provide free resources to caregivers navigating difficult issues, such as family homelessness, foster care, and trauma. The foster-care resources—which include an interactive storybook and printable activities, as well as videos featuring Muppets—are the latest in a series of packages that Sesame Workshop is producing to support children going through traumatic experiences. These online resources aren’t featured on the television show. They are intended for use by parents and caregivers, and also by therapists, social workers, and anyone else who works with these children.
