​​​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 on Feb 1st to continue the importance of education that Ataya loved so much.

​Ataya Kaser Memorial Scholarship

I Am Free


Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.
