He now serves as an urban missionary in south Dallas as the VP of Bonton Farms where he invests his time in God’s creation, growing food and making disciples.

GRANT K. SCHMIDT

Grant Schmidt is an Attorney at Winston and Strawn LLP. Grant specializes in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property litigation, and white collar crime.

"To develop virtues and spread faith in Jesus, we must not get caught up in the urge to think globally or nationwide. Instead, our focus must be local. The Human Impact has reminded me that we cannot overlook the dramatic impact that just focusing on one human being can have on our community – and how that can, in effect, have an even broader impact in ways we do not even realize in our community and beyond."

Airric Heidelberg

Chef Airric created Invasion restaurant with a mission and vision that would go beyond serving gourmet, delicious food. The heart of Invasion is focused on giving back to the community. Since its opening in 2020, Invasion has given over 10,000 meals to those in need. Whether it’s invading the taste buds with new, creative flavors or invading the city with meals on a mission, Airric consistently works to build upon his vision to make a difference in Dallas.


Airric believes in the vision and the future of The Human Impact. Homelessness is a large and complex issue that can seem overwhelming to overcome, but The Human Impact has shown change can start with just one. One meal. One conversation. One helping hand. The Human Impact has proven that befriending the homeless and making them feel seen and heard can lead to brighter futures and healthier communities.
