Cst. Cealia Gagnon (6)

Cealia was a Sponsored Employee to United Way from Windsor Police Service in 2015. She courageously shared her personal story and how United Way supported services help her move from poverty to a successful career as a Windsor Police officer. Sharing her success helped inspire hundreds of people to support United Way through donations, volunteer time or through participation in community activities. She volunteered with dozens of community organizations prior to her involvement. Following her time with United Way, she began a new chapter with Windsor Police Service working on community engagement and involvement. Cealia can be found doing work for her community on a daily basis, helping youth; seniors; vulnerable populations and many more. She is an inspiration to everyone around her and is one of the most giving and genuine people I have ever met.
