Winfield Correctional Facility's (WCF) capacity is 554 minimum-security adult male residents. Capacity at Wichita Work Release Facility (WWRF) is 250 adult male residents.

WCF is located in Cowley County in south central Kansas. The facility is located on the north side of the city of Winfield at the site of the former Winfield State Hospital and Training Center.

WCF serves a re-entry function designed to provide a smooth transition from an institutional setting to the community for residents expected to be paroled in the near future. 

Wichita Work Release Facility, in Wichita, provides selected residents the opportunity for community reintegration prior to their actual release from custody. Residents are housed in the highly structured residential setting and are expected to become gainfully employed on a full-time basis in the community.

As with other facilities under the management of the Secretary of Corrections, education, health services and food services are provided through contracts with private vendors.
