Can I fix my bike within my budget?

I've decided since the weather is getting nicer, it is time to fix my bike or get a new one. I had an accident around a year ago where the rear derailleur, rear brake, rear rim, and the rear tire were destroyed. I'm looking for a cheap way to replace these parts or permission to think about buying a new bike. The frame is a bit too tall for me and it is a little hard to sit on but I kind of enjoy the height. Price range is about $150. I really don't know enough about bike pricing and parts sourcing to really have a good idea what this would cost. I do however live near a bike coop so tools and various sundries are available.
tl;dr Replace rear derailleur,rear brake, rim and tire < $150
