Yeah temp agencies pay surprisingly well for clerical work! They'll probably have you take a typing test and ask about your work background, and you'll do assignments for various companies. Usually this includes hours of filing and printing stuff for HR departments. Tedious work, but like I said, pays pretty darn well. And the working conditions are generally good. You can never blow off the agency though, or quit a job midway, they will note it in your file which will mean you won't get the good jobs anymore.
You could also look into industries that commonly have work-from-home positions, like medical or legal transcription, online tutoring services, that kind of stuff.
