Regions & Chapters

NOBLE Chapters are where we make the most impact in the community. NOBLE is comprised of 59 chapters in six regions throughout the United States. We also have members in Canada, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, and several countries in Africa.



Whether members are engaged in a food or clothing drive, presenting the Law and Your Community, reading to children, awarding scholarships, or talking with young people about safety—be it traffic safety, gun safety, internet safety, bullying or HIV/AIDS prevention—NOBLE cares!
