She sent me to Hell

She sends lots of kids to Hell and makes BIG MONEY.
She handles those pesky pot smoking rich kids who might grow up to think critically if it were not for her "help".
Just keeping the American corprate-o-cracy rolling along.
Torture for Money and she has the prime clients on the North Shore of Chicago.
I don't gamble, but I would bet all of the brewhaha over on the Valley View School subject comes from here. (Harriet's Camp)
You Elite are so predictable.................

If you are talking about the OP, that's not her site.

Caring4Youth is a referral site run by the Cowdell family out of Utah. They also run a Transport Agency for teens, Insurance Agency (uniquely savvy about program needs), and also run or are closely linked to an "educational financing" agency, a PI agency (specializing in tracking down runaways) and some firm that makes and/or distributes GPS tracking devices intended to be worn by prisoners. Another member of that family does most of the websites. That would be
