Ataya Kaser was 14 years old when she was tragically killed in a car accident on October 7, 2018. Ataya was beautiful, full of life and loved her family and friends beyond measure. Ataya was a freshman at Leo JR/SR High School in Leo, Indiana and carried a 4.0 GPA, and was in the process of signing up for some college classes on line. Education was a top priority for Ataya.
Ataya was a huge supporter of Safe Haven Baby Boxes, attending events with her mother who is a SHBB volunteer. She was most fascinated by our purse bingo fundraisers and wanted to start volunteering to help with them when she turned 18.
The Ataya Kaser Memorial Scholarship Fund monies will go directly to scholarship winners determined by Safe Haven Baby Boxes Scholarship Committee. Every year Safe Haven Baby Boxes will put out scholarship details to continue the importance of education that Ataya loved so much. Now accepting applications!

On January 7, 2022 an eighteen year old teen dumped her newborn baby in a dumpster in Hobbs, New Mexico. Thankfully this baby was found alive, but the outcome could have been worse! State advocates, along with our organization, are on a mission to bring a Baby Box to New Mexico in order to give mothers in crisis a safe and 100% anonymous option.
