“Lonliness was hard for me,” he said.
So Kelliher started a nonprofit called the All Friends Network.
The website and app were made to provide a social network specifically for individuals with different abilities.
You could say he’s becoming the Mark Zuckerberg of his community, with a singular mission — to make friends and help others do the same.
“We work to promote people of all abilities on our network,” Trevor said.
People are joining, and Kelliher hopes to welcome even more.
“There’s a lot of people I think this could help,” said Gregory Kelliher, Trevor’s father. “We just have to reach them.”
