Website Connects Soldiers to Their Families

In efforts to support military families with young children and help them stay connected, the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) and Sesame Street Workshop recently teamed up to launch a new website called Sesame Street Family Connections.

The website is a bilingual(English/Spanish) child centered online space where both children and adults can interact and stay connected. It is a private online place to keep military families connected across the globe.

With the help of their favorite Sesame Street friends, family members can compose encouraging messages to each other, share artwork and videos, and upload photos.

The website also provides helpful resources for military families with young children experiencing the effects of deployments, when a parent returns home changed due to a combat related injury and helping children cope with the death of a loved one.
