Could be worn out brakes, air in the system, bad master cylinder or maybe something else. You'll probably need to take the hubs off and check them out. If you need the service manual you can get a copy HERE.

Welcome to the forums!
If the brakes were accidentally adjusted the wrong way, on some models it is possible that the adjusters may have lost contact with the shoes, so that adjusting them has no effect. If so, you can take the drums off and put them right back together. You may want to look things over in there anyway...
