The Who

On Dec 1st, 2014 the doors to the INN FOR WOMEN – CHIC SECOND HAND BOUTIQUE were opened and a dream for Yvonne Hogenes, along with 2 other dear friends, became a reality!

Yvonne, owner of Malary’s Fashion Network, along with Alida Wasmuth and Joyce VanderMey, had served on the board of SAS – Servants Anonymous Society of Surrey for over 4 years and they continue to have a passion to serve the amazing young women that are working everyday to escape human trafficking, domestic violence, addiction, and poverty. 

The How

With the help of many volunteers the store was painted and outfitted and ready for business in just 3 short weeks! It has been 14 months since the doors were opened and the Inn (as it is affectionately called by many) has created a buzz in the community! Words like “designer like”, “warm and welcoming”, “amazing prices”, “feeds the soul”, and more describe the experience! We have seen so much support from donations of women’s clothing and accessories, volunteers of all ages and occupations, regular shoppers and many referrals that we know we are here to stay and will be able to support and sustain in many ways the women we have been serving over the past year.

Please come out to the store to shop, bring your donations, talk to us about volunteering, and leave your email with us or find us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/innforwomen) to learn of events and ways that your support could help to make a significant difference for our brave young women and their families as they journey on to realize their full potential!

How to Help

There are always financial challenges associated with sustaining a non profit organization, and in November, 2015 funds were very tight, so Yvonne decided to organize a Pop Up Designer store to open for one weekend and see what funds could be raised by selling gently used clothing and accessories.

Within one week of requesting donations, there were enough clothes for a whole store! We opened for the weekend and with very little advertising we raised $1200! The desire and dream to have a chic second hand boutique become the social enterprise component of SAS (soon to be Feet on the Ground) to financially sustain it and raise the awareness!  It had to become a reality! Yvonne began to search for that perfect spot and in less than a week she found this quaint little spot right across the street from Malary’s in downtown Cloverdale to be available! That was definitely a sign and affirmation that this was meant to be!


Join us as we all put our boots on, plant our feet firmly on the ground, lock arms, and march forward to help end trafficking, domestic violence, poverty and addiction!   This is the beginning of the Feet on the Ground movement!

We all need each other to be the pieces that make the whole!  

We are always looking for more donations of clothing, accessories, purses, shoes, jewelry as well as volunteers click below to contact us.
