Relationship break ups forced dozens of people to apply for homelessness support in the Wakefield district last year.
The end of a relationship with a partner was one of the most common reasons people applied for help finding shelter during 2019, with 136 asking for support.
Evictions, domestic abuse and property disrepair were also among the causes listed.
A total of more than 1,300 people threatened with homelessness were given support by the local authority last year.
That ranged from help with outstanding rent to being put up in temporary accommodation or in hotels.
The figures were revealed in a report going before senior councillors next week.
It comes as Wakefield Council lays out its new strategy for tackling the problem over the next three years.
Close to £6m will be invested in the issue, while a Street Support website detailing information and advice, will be set up by the authorities.
Councillor Faith Heptinstall, portfolio holder for heath, said: "Homelessness is one of the major social issues of our times – affecting our district as well as most towns and cities across the country.
"We recognise that it is a major challenge - and for this reason the new strategy is focused on clarifying how the already strong network of services that we have in the district can be best focused on preventing and relieving homelessness and rough sleeping."
Research revealed by the homeless charity Shelter in 2016 showed around 30 per cent of people feared they would have nowhere to go if their relationship ended.
