do minor beneficary's have any rights ?

The trustee is my late mother's niece. my mother left her home to my boys who are the minor beneficiary's. we have lived in this house since 1993, and the boys were raised there. after mother passed, me and my boys took vacation to north carolina. i had the home rented out, and i continued to pay mtg.payments.
when we returned, the trustee had the renter sign a new lease and giving us no place to live. the trustee now has informed me that we can never move back in to our house, she will have it rented from now on, and for us ( me and my boys ) to live in a homeless shelter. the trust says they will inherit the estate when youngest turns 18. ( 8 yrs from now ) my mother had the trustee promise her that her grandchildren will always have a home, meaning that home.
Is this legal what she is doing? certainly not in the best interest of the beneficiaries.
