What problems in the North led to reform movements of the early 1800s?

Poverty, alcoholism, illiteracy, overcrowded housing, poor health care, abuse of women, and declining moral values were growing pains that first occured in the urban North. In the North there was a powerful movement to reform American society. This movement was largely rooted in religious faith. The democratic principles of the Second Great Awakening stirred the reform movements of the 1830s and 1840s. Reformers believed that God was all-powerful but that God allowed people to make their own destinies.
