Need some advice on my site.

RE: Need some advice on my site.
You're correct that the hosting is the problem: the extremely long TTFB indicates a poor hosting setup.

Without access to the server configuration, it's nigh on impossible to get to the root cause, and properly set the server up. As I guess this is a not-for-profit, I doubt there's much money to spare, but even something like a $5/mo VPS from Linode - https://www.linode.com/pricing - would probably do you once working.

If staying where you are, the only real way of moving forward is to implement a full page cache, which lessens the load on the server by storing results rather than processing data grabbed from the database, and templates from disk every time. I recommend wp-supercache - it's free! Also, I'd implement 'lazy-loading' - delaying downloading images that aren't visible as they're off the bottom of the screen. I use a plugin called bj lazyload, but it may have disappeared.

With a FPC, the first person hitting the page will still have this problem, but subsequent visitors will be able to use the cached version.

Good luck,

Steve
PS. I recommend you place a link to WPT results, rather than pingdom. I ran one from Dallas as a comparison... https://www.webpagetest.org/result/170609_NK_8BE/
