PHOENIX — U.S. Army veteran Mike Biggs was visiting his sister in Phoenix 10 years ago when a pair of fellow veterans saw him on the street and told him something he didn’t know about himself.

“They said, ‘Well, you’re homeless.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not.’ So they had to explain to me what the definition of homelessness is,” he said.

Biggs had been too busy getting by to realize his name hadn’t been on a lease for five or six years after getting out of the military.

“I said, ‘Well, yeah, and I’ve been homeless for a very long time then.’ So they said, ‘Well, you need to come with us.’ Didn’t know these guys from a can of paint,” he said.
