Wanted: Help with php/mysql project - charitable effort

Hi all,
I'm hoping to find some additional help with a site I'm maintaining for
my landlord. I'm trying to grow a web hosting and web design business. I
was to have this site as a job that would pay my rent but I'm having
problems with some of the coding requirements to make changes, add features,
fix problems, etc. The site is http://nationwidesingles.us
I have gotten some assistance and it has been very valuable to have someone
volunteer. Right now I see a need again, though, for help. I had to work
with
what was bought as a system over ebay... a dating system. I'm hoping
someone reading this does know enough php/mysql to help me. The searches
are problematic because there are no fields for State/City as well as
country.
So, adding that field of City and State would effect the data in there
already.
And then there is the issue of spelling mistakes, if a person spells their
city
wrong, that will effect matches. A browse feature would be nice to add as
well.
My story is this, I qualified for job retraining with the Division of
Vocational Rehabilation Services (VR) (they help people with different
injuries, traumas, and various other problems people can encounter). So,
job retraining involved the WebMaster Certificate Program at NC State.
Unfortunately that didn't make me competitive in this market. So, I started
my own business focusing on smaller companies, non-profits, individuals etc.
This plan involving startup costs is being paid by them too. Aren't I lucky
right?
Well, recently I had to work while the business grew to support me. I
was laid-off. I have been robbed recently in my area. With all my skills I
was homeless on and off over the past few years. Now that I'm getting
assistance from VR I see the gaps in what I need and what they can pay for
this effort of mine. Further training is not something they can pay. So, I
have to try to find someone who can help with php/mysql for this project and
others. I'd, of course, share income made on different jobs in a
subcontracting setup or whatever works. Right now, I'm trying to keep my
residence and do what I said I could do which would pay my rent. You can
see the site at: http://nationwidesingles.us You can see probably the need
for some improvement areas. I'm not sure I'd lay out the pics and all like
they are but I have to do what will be acceptable to my landlord. I'm sure
the fixes and improvements would not take that long. Issues of layout,
color and graphics are things I can do but I'm learning the server side
programming still.

If someone can help in any of these areas, it would be so appreciated...
a charitable effort, as it were, as I am trying to get by and it keeps me
from becoming homeless. You can email me at: br***@TriangleWebHosting.biz
directly or call 919-430-0315 or I will call.
Thanks for your time,
Bruce
