Criminals often took advantage of young people that were in poverty.[1]

Poverty was a serious social problem that involved certain underprivileged communities on the planet Earth especially during the 20th century.

It involved lacking material needs, such as food or the money to buy them with. This was often times because of a person's lack of employment or inability to make enough money with the low paying job they had. Such problems often effected a family's way of life in a negative way, leaving them deprived of basic needs, in some cases even shelter becomes beyond their ability to afford.



Mrs. Cadwalader and her board of directors were involved with raising money for deprived children by using the Blinken and Bristol Circus as a fundraiser.[2]
