About NPO Showcase

NPO Showcase highlights nonprofit and government organizations that improve the quality of life in our city and throughout our community. The program is a feature of GRTV and the Community Media Center, with producer and host Julie Way. You can catch it on GRTV on Saturdays at 8 AM and 6 PM and can view past episodes on the Grand Rapids Community Media Center website. If your nonprofit would like to be interviewed on NPO Showcase, please contact Julie Way.


This latest segment of NPO Showcase features the Kent County Elder Abuse Coalition, a large group of agencies representing non-profit, profit, and government organizations that are dedicated to the elimination of elder abuse in Kent County, Michigan and surrounding areas.

The Coalition works together to identify, advocate, educate, and seek justice for vulnerable adult abuse in Kent County. The Coalition also provides seminars and trainings on elder abuse and financial exploitation as well as other resources. Chris Becker, Kent County Chief Assistant Prosecutor and Coalition member, joins us in studio to discuss trends in elder abuse and how the Coalition is working to prevent it.
