“Sesame Street” has introduced a new character named Karli — a young Muppet in foster care, and her “for-now” parents, Dalia and Clem.”

Karli’s debut is part of an initiative from the “Sesame Street in Communities” program, which provides free resources for community providers and caregivers on various topics, including tough issues like homelessness and traumatic experiences, according to Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind the popular children’s show.

The free, bilingual resources, including digital interactives and printables, were released online today and help caregivers and providers support children as they navigate the world of foster care.
