Since 2013, Engility has donated more than $175,000 to Building Homes for Heroes’ (BHFH) mission of rebuilding the lives of our nation’s most severely injured veterans. In that time, we have taken a personal interest in the lives and sacrifices of five heroes.
In our sixth year of partnering with Building Homes for Heroes, Engility has been paired with two wounded veterans. These individuals have not yet been told that they are receiving a mortgage-free home, so we cannot yet reveal their names.

About Building Homes for Heroes
Building Homes for Heroes was borne out of the heartbreaking terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Deeply affected by the tragic events that day, Andy Pujol, BHFH president and founder, pledged to serve his country by helping those who defend and protect it. Building Homes for Heroes was officially founded in 2006. They build, modify and enhance homes, and gift them, mortgage-free, to injured veterans and their families. Beyond gifting homes, they are helping military veterans and their families whose lives have been affected by severe physical injuries or psychological trauma as a result of their service.
In 2016, BHFH gifted their milestone 100th mortgage-free home. For more information and for ways you can help, visit buildinghomesforheroes.org.
