Actress Eliza Dushku spoke at the Pine Street Inn’s annual Home Remedy Breakfast Wednesday, talking about her personal connection to the place as a volunteer, intern, and also by way of a family member who has struggled with mental illness and homelessness. Dushku, a Watertown High School grad who’s currently a student at Suffolk University, is best known for her roles on Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Dollhouse.” House Speaker Robert DeLeo also received a special award for his support of Pine Street, which serves more than 1,600 homeless individuals daily and nearly 9,000 annually.
