Combating homelessness and graffiti: CAM provides comprehensive solutions for complex problems

Homelessness and graffiti are two pressing issues that continue to challenge communities throughout Southern California. At CAM Property Services, we recognize the gravity of these problems and are committed to providing comprehensive solutions to address them.

The statistics paint a sobering picture of the homelessness crisis in our region. According to the 2023 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, homelessness in Los Angeles County saw a 9 percent increase to an estimated 75,518 people on any given night. The City of Los Angeles alone experienced a 10 percent rise to an estimated 46,260 people. This troubling trend extends beyond L.A., with San Bernardino County witnessing a 26 percent increase, San Diego County with a 22 percent rise, and Riverside County reporting a 12 percent increase in their unhoused population.

Homeless Encampment

CAM Property Services understands that homelessness is a multifaceted and sensitive issue. Which is why our highly informed Property Pros are uniquely trained and equipped to assist landlords, building managers, and tenants in addressing homeless encampments on commercial and residential properties. By taking an effective-yet-compassionate approach, we can navigate local ordinances and regulations, liaise with law enforcement and public officials, and factor in humanitarian concerns to achieve desired results.

Los Angeles Walls and Stairway Covered by Graffiti

We recognize that homelessness often intersects with other urban challenges, such as graffiti and vandalism. The recent headlines of a downtown Los Angeles high-rise covered in graffiti serve as a stark reminder of the importance of proactive graffiti abatement measures. Drawing from the broken windows theory, which suggests that addressing minor crimes like vandalism creates an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, CAM Property Services offers expertise in graffiti removal and abatement.

Property owners, landlords, and managers are often held responsible for promptly removing graffiti from their buildings to maintain a clean and welcoming environment. Failure to do so can result in costly fines and penalties. Our Property Pros are well-versed in the laws and regulations governing graffiti removal, ensuring strict compliance while upholding community standards and values.

Graffiti Covering Los Angeles Walls

Whether graffiti abatement requires paint-over, high-pressure steam cleaning, or sandblasting, our team is equipped to handle any job, large or small. We understand the importance of minimizing environmental impact and adhere to specific guidelines regarding the use of graffiti removal products.

At CAM Property Services, we believe in proactive solutions that enhance the liveability and vibrancy of our communities. If you require assistance with homeless encampment removal or graffiti abatement, don’t hesitate to contact the Property Pros at CAM today. Together, we can work towards a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive tomorrow.
