What kind of fork is it? IOW, is it rigid or suspension? If rigid, I'd say fix the bike! You can get a new fork for about $30-40, new handlebars for about $20 and you should be able to straighten the front derailleur.
If suspension, it's probably not worth fixing. The repairs will cost more than the entire bike! Cheap forks are around $150, then you've got to install them, then replace the handlebars. Figure about $200 +/-.
New bike $300 +/- depending on what you buy.
