I know it's kind of a longshot, but I say look for some kind of work like what you're proposing.
It's off the beaten path, for sure. But that's where some great ideas can come from. I think your wife being a counselor can actually be a good thing. Someone here wrote "the last thing they need in Haiti is Deanna Troi". That's probably because Deanna Troi was a worthless, useless character whose trite dialog would have made her disappear from the screen if it weren't for the actress' cleavage.
Doing 1-2 weeks of computer work or counseling is a hard one to nail down, but look out there. Write to/email churches or other volunteer groups, and just ask. I'm sure someone will come up with something. Hey, what could it hurt?
