HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over 200 of MemorialCare's top leaders will participate in a refurbish of a Santa Ana home in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. The home will be renovated to accommodate the family's middle daughter, who lives with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Halls will be widened, ramps will be made and the home will be given a "makeover" with upgrades throughout.

MemorialCare is a nationally-recognized, not-for-profit health system, with top ratings for quality and safety. There are five hospitals within the MemorialCare Health System serving Los Angeles and Orange counties: Anaheim Memorial, Long Beach Memorial, Miller Children's Hospital, Orange Coast Memorial in Fountain Valley, Saddleback Memorial in Laguna Hills and San Clemente. MemorialCare is dedicated to improving the health and well being of individuals, families and our communities through innovation and the pursuit of excellence.

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County is dedicated to ending substandard housing and building strong communities in Orange County. Habitat uses non-government donations of funding, materials, professional services and volunteer labor to build simple, decent homes which are sold to qualified low-income families for a 1% down payment, closing costs, and a zero-interest mortgage. Mortgage payments are recycled to build more Habitat homes. Habitat families contribute 500 hours of "sweat equity" to the program by building their own home, helping another Habitat family build a home, or working in some other area of the Habitat organization. Habitat for Humanity families and volunteers have built 124 homes in Orange County since 1988, and are currently building four homes in Anaheim.
