Mayor Darrell Steinberg held a service for the city's homeless population on Monday following a new report by the Sacramento Regional Coalition to End Homelessness.

The document finds that 78 homeless people in Sacramento County died in 2015.

But Sacramento is not the only city observing this issue.

Cities across the United States will pay homage to the homeless who have died in their community on Wednesday as part of National Homeless Day.

Bob Erlenbusch, executive director of the coalition, joins Insight to further delve into the report and what is being done to reduce homeless mortalities.
