Welcome! I'm originally from Fresno but I don't know of any resources for you I'm afraid. If a birthing center or home midwife isn't an option, I suggest laboring at home until the last possible moment. Then by the time you get to the hospital you'll just push the baby out.

Although you didn't get quite what you wanted in your previous births, I have to say it sounds like you had pretty nice births for hospital births. Being able to birth twins vaginally even with an epi is incredible! And having NCB with your last is amazing! I can totally understand your desire for a home water birth, but I would seriously think twice about doing so unassisted. While we all know that homebirths are just as if not more safe than in the hospital, this is with a trained midwife professional.

Maybe try contacting a doula in your area and see what OB/midwife/hospital they recommend for getting as close to what you want as possible.
