Program Director

Hipolito Oriol Jr. was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. From the beginning, his parents instilled the word of God into his life. However, at the age of 14 he started experimenting with drugs and hanging around the wrong crowd. His lifstyle progressively worsened and finally at age 26, he was tired of run-ins with the law and being controlled by his drug addiction. It was at this time that everything his parents had instilled in him about God became a reality. He wanted to live and not die.

It was at this point the Lord entered into his life and led him to a Christian rehab program. Shortly after completing the program, he felt a call to ministry. He entered Bible school to become better equipped to minister. It was in school where he met his wife, Diana. After graduating from school, the Lord opened the doors for him to serve in Freedom Gate Ministries. Over the past 18 years, Jr. has faithfully served the men that come to Freedom Gate. He has three beautiful daughters, a son in law, and five grandchildren. He thanks God for his mercy and for the privilege of doing His work.

House Manager

Carl Milito who has been with us for almost 3 years. He came to us from the Hope Rescue Mission and had a "Homeless mentality" but through the gospel and mentoring, the Lord has broken that cycle in Carl. He is now the assistant house manager, the cook, and a mentor by example to the other residents. Carl is always looking out for the needs of others in the house as he values each man that comes to Freedom Gate. We are grateful to have him.

Financial Coordinator

Ron Gebeau volunteers at least on day a week at Freedom Gate helping us to keep our books. He pays bills, does payroll, keeps all financial records needed for reporting to the government and prepares monthly financial reports for the board, etc.

We are very fortunate to have Ron on our team, we could not do it without him!
