HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Five youths from Connecticut’s foster care system are accompanying the commissioner of the Department of Children and Families on a visit to Washington.

Vice President Joe Biden is delivering remarks at an event to highlight steps the administration is taking to support children in foster care.

Children in foster care from around the country were invited to the Monday afternoon event which includes a screening of the film “Annie.” The Connecticut DCF says Commissioner Joette Katz will be attending with the five youths from the state.

The White House says there are more than 400,000 young people in the U.S. foster care system on a given day, with more than 100,000 waiting to be adopted.
