I supported my family for almost 3 years via ODesk, and also had decent clients and pay... Apologies for not thinking of that suggestion too!

Sorry for being late to the party.
My advice to someone returning to the workforce would be to look at oDesk.
Although the pay is generally low, there are opportunities to grow and build
a reputation.

How critical is the income right
now? If your primary goal is to get
yourself back into the field and put some recent experience
on your CV, you
might consider going after some of those absurdly underpaid
$15-$20/hr
contract listings that we often post grumbly messages
about. I hate the
fact that these exist, but since they're not going to go
away perhaps they
can be useful for *something*.

Income is always useful, particularly since we have two kids in college. It
is not imperative, however, and if a $15 or $20 short-term contract came my
way, I'd jump at it, just for the experience and to get back into the field.
