Dr. Duffy and his wife believe in being actively involved in the community. They are members and supporters of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Perot Science Museum, the Dallas Arboretum, and of our local public television and radio stations.
They have also been very involved with the Wilkinson Center. Based in East Dallas, the organization works to provide Pathways Out of Poverty through education, emergency services, and case workers to help some of Dallas’s most at risk residents. Dr. Duffy spent six years on the Governing Board, including two years as Board Chair. Duffy and his spouse continue to be involved with the organization and provide financial support.

Another of their favorite organizations is Café Momentum, founded by a big hearted and talented chef named Chad Houser. This incredible organization is both a school and a social services nonprofit that enrolls young at-risk teenagers and young adults who have often recently been released from prison or are homeless and strives to give them an education in the food services industry during their yearlong curriculum. Most of their students find employment and stay out of prison, saving millions of dollars for the city and saving these young lives. Dr. Duffy and Dr. Whittington are members of the Momentum Society, an organization of supporters who pledge yearly support.

Lastly, Dr. Duffy and Dr. Whittington have begun the work of creating a nonprofit designed to support plastic surgical education and plastic surgical patient care in resource poor countries around the world. Though Dr. Duffy’s efforts presently are focused in Haiti, the hope and the goal are to expand these efforts eventually to other countries. Community Involvement can be global too!
