    Rocky Roberts woke up one morning to find his mother was gone. She never came back.

    The 12-year-old decided to take care of his two younger sisters. In the large city where they lived, he kept his sisters in the house to avoid the danger of gangs, which were beating up and harassing people who were homeless.

    The trailer has been secured at no cost to the city, but Waste Management only can offer the service temporarily because of costs involved, Duvall said.
