The DRC is operated by GEO Reentry Services and opened to help alleviate jail crowding and tackle chronic recidivism with certain offender groups. Individuals are referred to the center with the goal of changing criminal behavior through cognitive behavioral therapy, substance abuse treatment and groups that teach participants positive social skills so they are successfully prepared to reenter society. Formerly the Sedgwick County Day Reporting Center, which opened in 2006, the Wichita DRC has operated under its new name, in partnership with the city of Wichita, since 2016.

The Wichita DRC, which can serve up to 50 probationers, provides a structured combination of evidence-based practices, training, case management and community connections. The program combines daily reporting with groups and treatment that focus on employment or full-time school enrollment when participants exit the program.
