Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change

Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change is a 30-minute special presented by Sesame Workshop and featuring Queen Latifah and John Mayer. Latifah and Mayer tell the stories of service members returning home with injuries—both visible and invisible—and explore the heroic struggles their families face on the path to finding a "new normal." With help from Elmo, Rosita and their Sesame Street friends, Coming Home gives voice to the children as they play a central role in the family's adjustment process, and encourages them to be what they are: kids.

Additionally, the program features coping strategies and powerful real stories to help these families and others find ways to be there for each other. Join us on April 1st as we focus on the challenges faced by injured soldiers and their families, salute their extraordinary courage, offer the general public ways to support service members in the community, and provide a brief but powerful glimpse into the lives of these amazing families.
