Milwaukee County Day Reporting Center

The Milwaukee County Day Reporting Center (MCDRC) provides day programming for participants to address underlying needs while satisfying court obligations.  The Benedict Center is a was instrumental in advocating for the creation of the Day Reporting Center in 1999.

Today the MCDRC is operated as a partnership between the House of Correction, Wisconsin Community Services (WCS), the Benedict Center, Milwaukee Area Technical College, and the Parenting Network. Our Women's Harm Reduction Program provides gender-responsive treatment for women in the MCDRC.

Each participant in the Day Reporting Center has an individual treatment plan including; a plan for temporary housing; a long-term plan for housing that meets their needs; a plan for financial support; a plan for legal barriers, court dates, tickets, and completion of probation; the identification of women’s community supports; and any other activity that is directly related to women’s success in achieving her identified goals.
