When I 1st found this website I saw a page that broke down the yearly cost for Straight, Inc. Now I can't find it. I emailed Wes Fager and he replied but not to what I was looking for. He directed me to the year end financial statements to run the program.

Does anybody know what the fee was charged for out of town kids that served all their time in foster homes? Was it different than locals?

I'm asking, and want to know, because if I ever get rich (win the lottery?), I would like to give my parents a check for that exact amount of money.

Since Straight gave them the get out of jail free card for anything they did wrong in raising me, I have never been allowed to tell them the many things they did wrong (or how it affected me). One day, I would love to give them full financial reimbursement for the full Straight bill along with a very long & detailed explanation of all the things they did wrong in raising me.

I am so sick & tired of playing this role of 41 year old woman who ruined everyones life.

Sorry for the rambling/venting. I just really want to know how much it cost financially. Did they charge by the month/year? Did it cost extra for out of towners? I know they incurred travel expenses every weekend (gas & food); but, they lodged with Tampa family. So, no hotel bills were incurred until what? I don't even remember! 3rd phase?

PS  when I got married in 1995, I made my husband  take me to Tampa for our honeymoon. I also made him stay at the hotel where my parents stayed when I was "allowed" to spend wknds with them. Anyone from the 1980/81 era may remember that brand new shiny Marriott in the business district of Tampa? They gave Straight families a discount. Always trying to retrace the steps back to hell (even on my honeymoon). Psycho!
Well, it wasn't new & shiny on my honeymoon. Thank God I married a Saint who tries to help me with this stuff that haunts me. I'm glad I found the address of the bldg (threw yall) so next time we visit the Bay area, I'll know exactly where to go to finally see it with my own eyes again.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Relationship status with our parents

Dear Hippie, I noticed on the WTF topic that you stated your father was sick or close to death  (just a couple weeks ago?).

I'm curious about how you & your parents relationship was after straight, how your father is now, how are you doing with it? Does/did your parents like your music?

If it's too personal, don't worry bout it. Just want you to know that I saw that & cared about it.

In a nutshell, I've always been in communication & even lived w/my parents after hell hole. i'm now sort of a taxi driver for my mom to all her pain management doctor appts. they suck the life right out of me just being on the phone with all their problems with no solutions. honor thy father and mother is what i try to do regardless of my childhood.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Intake Records, etc.

Did any of you ever try to get your records from Straight? Was anyone successful at it?

I called Straight in St Pete (of course I don't remember the year), when they were still in operation to ask for a copy of my records be mailed to me. I was told by the female staffer they do not release records.
