Front brakes will not touch rim when I squeeze

Hi all,

My roommate has a crap Walmart type bike she keeps out back covered with a tarp. She decided to go for a ride Friday morning, so I took q look at the bike. The front brake was completely messed ho, the back brake was loose. There was no air in the tires. All the bolts needed tightening. I'm instslling a water bottle holder, and I've re-lubed the chain. One thing I can't seem to figure out is why the brake shoes won't touch the rim when I squeeze the brakes. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it?
