How We Became FearLess
FearLess Dallas was founded by Jill Nastasia (MSW, MEd), fulfilling a lifelong goal of giving back. As a teen, Jill aged out of foster care. While she had street smarts and survival skills, she found herself and other women like her lacking Life 101. It was other women in her community who helped her not only survive but to learn how to navigate adulthood. Jill knew she wanted to someday create an organization that would help young women transition into fulfilling, sustainable lives.
Fast forward to 2020. When COVID-19 hit, Jill noticed it was not just women fresh out of the foster system who needed this service. Women+ of all ages were hitting walls, wondering what their next chapter would be.
It was this ah-ha moment that grew into FearLess’s Full-Circle Mentorship approach. At FearLess, we believe all women+ have something to offer and something to learn. Regardless of their stage or status, we provide a community where they can mentor and be mentored, learn and lead, connect and be connected.
Whether your next step is counseling, or attending a community event, we are here to help you Become FearLess as you approach your next chapter.
