Our Story

Meet The Founders

President & CEO

P​resident Joshua Scalf founded R.S.M. on April 15, 2011. While serving four years in the Virginia Wise Correctional Unit, Mr. Scalf gave his life to Jesus Christ and discovered an overwhelming love for people who suffer from addiction. By the power of the Holy Spirit, he started teaching his fallen brother’s freedom from drugs and alcohol through Jesus Christ. Jesus filled Joshua’s heart with love that continued to pour out of him after his release from prison in October 2014.

In 2016 Joshua married his wife Marley Scalf. After overcoming sexual abuse trauma and finding freedom from her addiction to drugs, Marley found Christ in 2012. She then started her training in faith-based recovery which led to 4 years of hands on experience in discipleship training, residential recovery and biblical advising. Together, Pastor Joshua and Sister Marley use the gospel paired with their own past experiences to light the way for those who are still in the dark.

In answering God’s call to the gospel, R.S.M. has opened Christ-centered residential recovery homes designed to help drug addicts and alcoholics surrender their lives to God and become functioning contributing Christians in today’s society.

Ways You Can Help

When these struggling men and women of addiction reach out to Recovery Soldiers Ministries they’ve exhausted all resources and most of them have nowhere else to turn. From stealing from mom and dad to manipulating their grandparents, and stringing their family through a chain of lies to get their high, their bridges are burned. Most families have had no choice but to turn their backs and show them, tough love. (Enabling can result in a family destroying addiction also). Sometimes the family of addicts in active addiction must give their loved one over to God through prayer. We must take our hands off and allow God to work.

These suffering addicts have nothing and some have only the clothes on their backs. We only ask that you give what God has laid on your heart and thank you for your blessing. Useful ways to help include, but are not limited to:

  • Financial Donations or Ministry Partnerships
  • Material Donations (Food, Appliances, Clothing, Toiletries, Etc)
  • Utilize our Students’ Job Training Opportunities 
  • Donate A Vehicle
  • Shop At Our Thrift Store

If you have any questions about how you might be able to help, please contact us. God bless you!
