    Something is missing from this site and not being a designer has made this difficult. Please feel free to rip this apart and tell me what need to change and what looks good.

    Well I was expecting something really terrible, but it's not THAT bad. Maybe have a box with text at least explaining what the site is about and what people are supposed to do when they get there. You need to give the users a little direction.

    Colors are a little funky but the content is your enemy right now. Work some of that out and you'll be on the right path.

    Thanks for your input. That was really what I was thinking was wrong. I changes some more stuff if you would like to take a look again.

    I am not in love with the color of green chosen, and the gradient on the navigation bar looks a bit odd. I do however think the layout works nicely.

    If you had a nice logo, it would really set off the appearance. The text in the header is a little pixelated.

    I still think you need to direct the user on "what to do now that I'm here". I still really don't understand, but I'm not surfing the whole site to find out either. It should tell me in that first paragraph you have. It tells what you are, which is better than before, now tell them what you want them to do.

    the white overlay on your banner makes it look dull.
    get rid of the white overlay, its a pretty nice banner

    fancy up the "antioch cares" text and possibly make it a tiny bit smaller.
    i dont quite like the blue to green hover.

    and style the search button to match the site.

    other than that, for not being a designer, youve done a pretty good job.

    im not a designer either, and usually my stuffs a lil worse than that.
    So, be happy, it looks pretty good. Keep changing it until you find something u like.
